It’s just a brief mention in The Register, but if you’ve ever seen a Minecraft game in progress, the connection is pretty hard to miss:
Lego has given the green light to a set of the famous building bricks based on the world of the cult cyber-block game Minecraft.
The idea came from fan submission site Lego Cuusoo, where users can suggest new creation kits. If these submissions gather sufficient interest among the site’s visitors, the Danish toy maker takes note and sometimes agrees to take the concept to retail.
It’s amusing to think that the next generation of Lego users may consider it to be a spin-off of Minecraft for use offline.
