An official statement confirms that the LEGO Games team is aware of – and supportive of – the fan game BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui.
Brick Fanatics readers will be aware of the fan game, BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui, that ‘Crainy’ has been working on for six years. The creator released a polished trailer, promising an open world RPG with the opportunity for multiplayer and different styles of gameplay.
LEGO Games has shared a statement about the unofficial video game project:
We can confirm CrainyCreations, the creators behind “Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui”, was in dialog with us (i.e. LEGO Games) to discuss the future plans of the game including ways the project can continue to exist. We see game development as an exciting opportunity to add new way to engage with the LEGO brick. In the LEGO Games team, we are always looking for ways to inspire and encourage the fan community including a recently BETA launched LEGO Microgame in partnership with Unity. Perhaps this can help give others the tools to do what CrainyCreations has done by encouraging and making game development easier than ever before. Keep your eyes open as more news to come on that end.”
BIONICLE fans will be delighted to hear that this fan driven project is not being closed down as they await more information on when it will be ready to play.
