Lego Of Tradition: On Traveller’s Tales

By John Walker on May 20th, 2011.

They have a really weird thing about bananas.

It’s a mistake, in light of Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean, to accuse Traveller’s Tales of diminishing returns with their Lego series. I keep seeing that happening. It’s wrong. If anything the problem is the stability of their consistency. I’ve had a think about why.

This’ll Sell Well: Lego Harry Potter

By Alec Meer on June 1st, 2009.

About as obvious a next move as they come for Traveller’s Tales – they’re all chummied up with Warners in the wake of Lego Batman, which surely paved the way for what’s the holy money-grail of Lego licenses: that bally boy wizard. The game’ll cover the lad’s first four years at Hogwarts, and will make EA, who publish the movie-related HP games, very cross indeed. Video and details follow.

By John Walker on May 13th, 2008.

Whip-crackaway-whip-crackaway-whip.

[Update: Now with thoughts]

Only a fool wouldn’t be excited to get a turn with a new Lego game from Traveller’s Tales, so please be outstanding for the arrival of Lego Indiana Jones’ demo.

It’s a chunky 32 and a half Peggles, and you can read thoughts below.

Builders of the Lost Ark

By Alec Meer on March 9th, 2008.

Look! More Lego Indiana Jones footage! Including the giant boulder!

Gametrailers. I don’t hate these guys.

So far, so Lego Star Wars – I was hoping there’d be a little more focus on controlling solely Indy, as he’s the reason we’re all signed up for this, but the character-swapping mechanic seems as prevalent as ever – but it sure is pretty and adventuresome. Plus, I now want a pet Lego crocodile.

Nazis: I hate those guys!

By Kieron Gillen on February 8th, 2008.

There's not really many alt-text jokes I can do tastefully here.

We try to keep up to date with all forms of Indie-development, so were paying close attention to Traveller’s Tales’ forthcoming Lego Indiana Jones game. However news reaches us, via the C&VG chaps reading their latest copy of the looming-black-obliesk of the games press, Edge, that the game will actually sidestep the Nazi issue by excising them completely. “Lego having already replaced them with an anonymous genocidal, occultist, trenchcoat-wearing master-race”, they’re quoted as saying.

Whatever to make of this?

Games For 2008: Lego Batman / Indiana Jones

By John Walker on February 1st, 2008.

See in that cage over there? Those are our hearts. Yours too, probably. Traveller’s Tales have captured them, probably for nefarious purposes.

TT seem to somehow have time to make two games at once, when we know we’d be swimming around in the vast pools of money Warner just paid to acquire the company. £100 million. Blimey.

There’s a limit to how many times you can reel out the same idea before people start to get cynical. Fortunately, for the Lego series, there’s probably about another four hundred before they’re in trouble. What’s even better is that TT seem to have picked the two films anyone could have hoped to see recreated in Legoey gaming form: Indiana Jones and Batman.

So here’s what we know about each new game:
