I think it’s fair to assume that most people know what kickstarter is. It’s a system that project leaders use to potentially gain funding and hopefully finish proposed projects. What most people don’t know is that LEGO™ has a similar system called Cuusoo. The difference is that once a project idea reaches 10,000 supporters it goes into a quarterly pool of other projects that have reached the same amount of supporters. Every quarter LEGO™ reviews this pool for potential future LEGO™ products. If a product is chosen the project leader will receive 1% of the total net sales. In fact, LEGO™ Minecraft got its start from this very system. Now another project has been proposed that potentially could be as big as Minecraft.
Castle Crashers is an amazing side-scrolling, mid-evil hack-n-slash game that was released for both XBLA and PSN. I played the game when it was released and had a blast with it. The game was surprising deep and the combat was smooth and satisfying. An idea has been posed to make this addicting game into a LEGO™ set. All of us at Twonk Hammer think that this idea is fabulous. It would be hilariously fun to literally Castle Crash. We think that this project fits with what LEGO™ did with Minecraft.
