Here’s something a bit interesting – The lead environmental artist, Brent Waller, for 5 Live Studios’ Satellite Reign, which ran a successful KickStarter campaign last year, is also a LEGO fanatic and has designed a 30th anniversary Ghostbusters LEGO kit which is going into production.
LEGO CUUSOO is a website where LEGO fans can submit ideas for models to be put into production – if a submission gains 10,000 supporters, it will be considered during an official review process. Brent’s ECTO-1 car and Ghostbusters team minifigures, hitting the sweet spot of the cult movie’s 30th Anniversary, passed muster (only the seventh kit to be approved since the scheme started in 2008) and with commercial modifications will be made into a retail LEGO kit.
“I grew up with a love of LEGO, video games and movies like Ghostbusters, so it’s a dream come true to have my hand in designing an official LEGO set based on Ghostbusters,” explained Brent.
Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game under development at Brisbane based 5 Lives Studios. You control a squad of four agents, each with distinct and unique abilities, as they vie for control of a fully simulated, living, cyberpunk city.
The game world is designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, giving you the tools and freedom to play how you want to play, so you can create strategies and scenarios that not even the developers have anticipated!
Customise your team with the strength to destroy your enemies head-on, or hack into their facilities to manipulate their infrastructure without them ever knowing you were even there.
Will you take down your enemies with brute-force? Covert espionage and infiltration? Or will you use propaganda to influence the citizens of the city and overthrow the controlling powers?
