Just Imagine - A Lego RTS

Just imagine...

 

... Imagine a computer game. More specifically, a real-time-strategy game.
But not with medieval knights. Not with spacemen. No, something far better - with both.

 

Both sides made out of Lego bricks.

 

Imagine starting with the classic AOE three minifigures...
Imagine harvesting Yellow bricks to build more minifigures....
Imagine harvesting Grey bricks to build weapons for those minifigures...
...  and harvesting all sorts of bricks to start building small vehicles....
Imagine using those vehicles to harvest more bricks to build more vehicles....
... to build war machines of destruction...

 

... And then imagine the other player doing exactly the same thing.

 

 

Picture the carnage. Robin Hood's arrows bringing down giant alien spaceships, which are in turn bombing Aquanauts submarines trying to mine silver crystals to add a giant death beam to the Neptune Discovery Lab. Mars Mission tanks grabbing with Police Cars, and aliens walking away handcuffed. Pirate ships boarding submarines. Chrome Crushers drilling the front off those inferior Power Miners vehicles. Spamming Galaxy Squad speeders to fight off an unexpected invasion of tribesmen lead by Achu. Training "super units", like the MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft, only to find that your enemy has build the Mobile Devastator before you and has just wiped out half of your Aquanaut allies...

 

... and of course, destroying anything yields precious bricks back, so imagine sending a fleet of Small Transport Trucks to pick up the wreckage of the defeated Agent Bikes so you can upgrade your Chrome Crushers to have a second laser on them to defeat the second wave of inevitable Agent Bikes...

 

... and using those bricks to repair your frontline Exo-Force mechs with Mechanics while they pelt away at the Fire Station...

 

 

... then imagine starting LDD or variants thereof, and creating your own units...  your own faction to bash the Ice Planet / Insectiods alliance with crossbows mounted on cars... expanding on tech trees of short-lived themes.... bringing new units to complement a strategic weakness...

 

 

 


... of course, the keyword here is "imagine," as I can't code for peanuts. large.OldTonguePNG_transparent.png.299864b6559440630e29f111b85cffe2.png

 

But still. It's a nice idea to think about.

It's like watching 10 episodes of your favourite show, being left on a cliff hanger with the season final next week .... and the show gets cancelled right before it.

Oh, so simply put Galidor? (Which ended on a cliffhanger)
