New Contest - Build your own game!

As our partners at Unity say, “The world is a better place with more creators in it.” In this contest we’re looking for gaming enthusiasts to release their inner game creator! 

Never built a game? No probs! The free LEGO Microgame from Unity is exactly what you need to get started. Are you an advanced game developer? Bring it on and show your skills as the LEGO Microgame offers unlimited creative possibilities, so treat it like any other game project, but with LEGO bricks in it. Are you a keen Studio builder? Import your builds to the game. We can assure you - you’ll never run out of bricks.

Once you've built your game, come back to LEGO Ideas and show off your game! Create a trailer, make posters, share screenshots. Make your game look as interesting as possible!

Besides two grand winners and two runner-up winners, two entries in this contest will be randomly selected as winners too. No reason not to get involved!  

By the way, EVERY participant will receive a custom, limited edition LEGO Unity Minifigure! 

 

How to participate? 

  • New Users: On a laptop or personal computer, visit the dedicated LEGO Microgame page and click Get started at the top.

  • Submit a trailer, make posters, share screenshots of your game in your submission.
