It's a match made in heaven...a glorious blocky version of heaven. Minecraft developer Mojang revealed yesterday that they've struck a deal with tangible building block leviathan LEGO. So what does that actually mean? Well, pretty much what any LEGO or Minecraft fan has been waiting for: Minecraft LEGO sets are happening, people!
Seeing LEGO Minecraft sets is also our dream, so we linked to one of the projects. It’s clear to us that there are many creative people with good ideas for this and we want to throw our own hat into the ring and start this project to bring the best LEGO Minecraft builders together.
Minecraft is about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine in the virtual world. You can build anything you imagine with LEGO bricks in the physical world. Minecraft and LEGO were meant to be together. - Mojang
The studio said that it had brought in several LEGO fans from previous projects to help facilitate things, stating that they're talking with the LEGO Group with regards to licencing, and will be donating 1% royalty from LEGO CUUSOO to charity. [GameInformer]
