Hello everyone, recently I’ve had the privilege of interviewing the DLU team. I ask and they answer quite a lot of interesting questions, so I hope you all enjoy it. (I realise that some people might not believe this is a legitimate interview so I’ll be posting the google doc the DLU team gave me, and DLU should have re tweeted the interview by now depending on the time that you’re reading this)
1. How did you guys get into starting this project?
A. Way back in 2013, Darwin and I saw that LUNI was never going to make it. We still wanted to play LEGO Universe again so thus Darkflame Universe was born, the project that has since then grown to include many new developers.
2. What are your thoughts on LEGO closing down the original servers?
A. LEGO was justified in doing so; they weren’t making the money they needed so continued operation would have only hurt them.
3. Assembly, Paradox, Sentinel or Venture League?
A. Paradox for life, although not all of the team here agrees. Wormholer will be getting a nerf… 🙂
4. What are you hoping DLU will become?
A. We are hoping for DLU to become the central community for LEGO Universe fans, new or old, to meet up and play once again. Our Alpha test is our first step towards that goal, with over 50 players invited and playing on our testing servers!
5. Will you be expanding your website to be similar to the old LEGO Universe website? Or will you just expand it but make it your own thing?
A. Our website will be expanded to more accurately mirror the old LEGO Universe website. This upcoming expansion will include a forum for bug reporting, general discussions, and news about development straight from the developers!
6. Are you excited to announce further updates on your Twitter page and website?
A. We love posting blogs on our website and tweeting to all of our fans! Just a few days ago we hit the thousand follower mark on our Twitter account, so we definitely admire our fans and their ability to spread the word about us 🙂
7. What did LEGO Universe mean to you?
A. All of us here at Darkflame Universe loved LEGO Universe and still do, which is why we’ve given years of our lives to this project. We want to share the game again with past players and those who missed out on the game!
8. Do you believe that LEGO will take legal action regarding this project?
A. No, we don’t believe so.
9. Out of all the pets in LEGO Universe, which one is your favourite?
A. I’d have to say the tortoise was, as it brought back some good memories of first exploring Gnarled Forest and listening to the music in Tortoise Terrace!
10. Which world in LEGO Universe is your favourite?
A. That’s an incredibly tough question! Probably Gnarled Forest as it was so memorable with locations like the Ravine and Pirate Camp 🙂
It was a great pleasure to interview the DLU team, remember to check out their website and twitter for more updates!
