Happy Birthday LEGO. Yeah that's right, 85 years ago the company LEGO was founded. Originally they produced wooden toys, but after a while they invented those awesome block pieces children and adults can get very creative with. Also, LEGO Technic turns 40 years old in 2017, so actually it is a double celebration this year.
To celebrate it, we motivate you to play a LEGO Game this month. But since there are chances that you don't own one, or already played all of them we add a second part to the theme.
Part 1: Lego Games
For this part, just play any of the Lego-Games available on Steam. We will count your beaten/completed games just like the months before. For a detailed list please take a look here. Just remember that your completion only counts, if you finish the game this month by either getting achievements or taking a screenshot at the game end. If the game does not support the Steam Screenshot feature, then you can upload your screenshots anywhere you like, for example imgur.
Part 2: Build your dreams
As Lego is also about building things we’d like to motivate you to play games that focus on building. Only games where the main focus is building are valid. Not valid examples are Skyrim and Fallout 4. Although you can build a house/settlement here, the main focus is a totally different one. Please check the Gamelist for all valid games. In case you have additions, please let us know.
Ranking for this part will be totally different. We will not counting how many achievements you have done. The main focus will be your creativity. We will do a little contest.
Your task is to build something on your own in the game you want to play. For example an awesome city in Cities: Skylines. Or an awesome vehicle in Besiege. Be creative. Please submit your entries in This Post. At the end of the month I will take your screenshots, nominate them for different awards and will ask everyone in the BLAEO community to vote for their favourites.
For submissions to be valid they must fulfil these requirements:
- Screenshot taken of the completed project in March 2017
- At least 2 additional screenshots, showing some of your progress
- You either finished the Main Story of the game within March 2017 or have played it for at least 10 hours (this month), if there is no main story or no achievements
- If you are working together, for example building a city in 7 Days To Die, everybody needs to make those screenshots with their own account.
- Make a small description of why you think this creation is so special. If you work together everybody in the Team should describe what their work has been
Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all the games from the theme list this month?
I don’t own any of the games from the game list, how can I still participate?
The game list is most likely incomplete. If you own or know of any other games that might fit this month’s theme, feel free to suggest them under the corresponding post.
I already played all the games I own from the theme list, should I play something again to participate?
If it was an awesome game and you’d like to replay it, sure, go ahead. Only replaying it for the theme won’t help you with your backlog though, so if that would be your only reason you should probably think about trying something else instead. (Although, if you have absolutely nothing else to play, you can still do that, I guess …)
But seriously, I don’t have any games from the list, any suggestions?
How about trying to finish something from your unfinished pile? Or maybe ask another Member to play a crafting game with you? Wouldn't it be awesome to build on a huge structure as a Team?
