Much of the gameplay showed LEGO Brick Tales running on Switch. We have half an hour of footage showing the new title from Thunderful and ClockStone.
In LEGO Bricktales, discover an innovative brick-by-brick construction mechanism to design puzzle solutions from your own imagination. See your creations come to life in a beautiful LEGO world where every problem has a constructive resolution.
Embark on an epic adventure through a world of beautiful brick-by-brick LEGO diorama biomes as you search for inspiration to help your grandpa reinvigorate his run-down amusement park with your little robot pal in tow. Your journey will take you to the deepest jungle, sunny deserts, a bustling corner of town, an imposing medieval castle and tropical Caribbean islands. Help the figures in these worlds by solving puzzles and unlocking new skills throughout the story to further explore these worlds and uncover the many secrets and mysteries they contain.
From purely aesthetic creations, like a market stall or a music box, to functional physics-based puzzles like building a crane or a gyrocopter – each diorama offers a variety of building points with the freedom of an intuitive brick-by-brick construction. At each location you are given a set of bricks and it’s up to you to find a unique build that will work. In addition to specific puzzles and quests, there are additional constructions in the amusement park so you can customize the rides to personalize them!
Your grandfather, a genius inventor, called you for help! His beloved amusement park is about to close as the mayor threatens to shut everything down and seize the land unless the necessary repairs are made to bring it up to standard. With the help of your mighty little robot buddy, you can restore it using a mysterious device based on alien technology. As a power source, the device needs Happiness Crystals, which you can collect by making people happy and solving their problems. Using a portal, travel to different places in the world to help people and collect their happiness crystals. Buckle up for the ultimate building adventure and save your grandpa’s amusement park!
