Lego Builder's Journey Review

This isn't what you expect it to be. Rather than a brick-based puzzle for kids it's more like a thoughtful and nostalgic work of art for adults. You work through abstract levels by following instructions but also by breaking the rules. Take the time to experiment, and most importantly, to play as figuring out who we are and what we become is the Builder’s Journey.

It's a poetic puzzle set in a LEGO world humming with life. Brick animation, sound effects and music combine to draw you into the word-less narrative. A little like Thomas Was Alone, you soon find yourself emotionally connected the coming and going of the brick characters.
