The team at Traveller's Tale Games are clearly the people to go to when it comes to Lego games. At this point TT Games are Lego veterans. They have produced a plethora of Lego games for franchises such as: Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman. Some folks, such as myself, may think that the Lego franchise has run its course but looking at Lego Harry Potter I may have to change my stance.
Watching these two new developer videos for Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, it’s clear that TT Games is passionate about the game. Perhaps it’s just the various cool British voices of the devs but they really convey that this isn’t a shallow project. Yeah, the game is still nothing too groundbreaking as far as the Lego franchise is concerned, but it just feels fresh.
I can’t put my finger on exactly why I’m finding Lego Harry Potter appealing and my lack of disdain for it is surprising. Maybe my jaded gamer exterior is starting to crack and I’m turning into a video game softie.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is set for release in June on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC.
