Last week, we discussed the upcoming LEGO Tower game, based on the classic mobile game called Tiny Tower by NimbleBit (see: LEGO Tower Mobile Game Coming Soon!). To celebrate the release of the game and to get LEGO fans excited about its potential, the LEGO Ideas team and the LEGO Games team collaborated to run a very cool contest with some even cooler prizes. Details below. 🙂
Design a virtual floor for the LEGO Tower game! If you could include your very own, customized floor in a LEGO Tower, how would it look? The LEGO Ideas team challenges you to build a virtual LEGO floor that fits within the brand new LEGO Tower game. Make sure you build an awesome place to hang out, because your design could end up in the actual LEGO Tower game launching this summer. So, open your digital LEGO building tool and unleash your creativity to get your very own floor included in the LEGO Tower game!
As usual with LEGO Ideas contests, this contest will also include three phases. During the submission phase, LEGO fans can submit their entries. The deadline to make a submission is May 2nd, 2019 at 6:00 AM EST. It is recommended that you submit your entry 2-3 days before the deadline in the event the LEGO Ideas team requests you to make some changes. During the judging phase, a panel of judges from the LEGO Games team will review the entries and choose the winners. This will take place by May 10th. The last phase is the winners’ announcement, which will be no later than May 22nd.
If you are interested, here are the steps for entering the contest: 1.) Submissions must be built with a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. You’re welcome to use image editing tools, such as Photoshop, to enhance your photos/presentation. 2.) Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off all angles and any features or functions of your creation. Please submit your photos in as high a resolution as possible so that the details can be clearly. If possible, the shortest edge should be at least 1080 pixels. 3.) Add a title and short description. 4.) Upload your entry to the contest using the blue Submit Your Entry button on the LEGO Ideas contest page.
As mentioned above, your entry must be built with a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer, or third-party 3D LEGO building software. You’re allowed to use all LEGO elements that can be found in the digital building tool, including LEGO System, LEGO DUPLO and LEGO Technic elements. Your entry should include one floor fitting the dimensions of the LEGO Tower as per the template and requirements in the blue box above. Unfortunately, elements exclusively from sets based on an intellectual property can’t be included in the LEGO Tower game, so please refrain from using elements related to third-party intellectual property, e.g. LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Harry Potter, or even The LEGO Movie. If an IP element is used mistakenly, and your submission is selected as a winner, the element in question will be removed/replaced before integration into the LEGO Tower game. Your submission may also not be based on any third-party intellectual property, e.g. Star Wars (or other entertainment franchises), automotive brands, existing buildings, etc. Also, don’t include any minifigures in your build. Please note that you have to be at least 13 years old at the time of entering the contest. There are some other rules to consider, which you can find at the LEGO Ideas contest page.
Six winners will get their winning room integrated into the LEGO Tower game launching this summer. On top of that, each winner will get the #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage, the #21213 LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle, a $200 shopping spree at the Online LEGO Shop, and a very special unlock feature in the new LEGO Tower game.
Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after May 10th, 2019. Winners will be announced on LEGO Ideas when all winners have returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents. A winner who does not return their Winner’s Certification Document within one week (5 days) of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.
