Overview

Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui is a free fanmade open-world RPG set in the universe of Lego Bionicle.

After six long years of development, Im excited to finally reveal this project. It is set during the first year of Bionicle and follows the story of the Toa on their quest to collect the 6 great masks of power to rid the island Mata Nui of the evil influence called Makuta. It aims to capture the atmosphere and narrative of the first year of Bionicle perfectly.

I wanted to make sure that I had a substantial amout of content to show you guys before revealing this project, which is why you are just now hearing about it.
For the longest time, this game has been a one-man project done by me, however, in the more recent stages of development Ive received some incredibly valuable help from key contributers, especially when it comes to the creation of 3D assets.

Gameplay Walkthrough

Features

  • EXPLORE THE ISLAND OF MATA NUI
    Pick from one of the six legendary Toa. Each Toa comes equipped with one of six elementals powers (Fire, Ice, Water, Air, Earth, Stone) and its own starting mask. Each Toa starts in a different area of the world.

  • COLLECT THE GREAT MASKS OF POWER
    Search the island to collect the six great kanohi masks of powers. Each mask grants you a host of new abilities that not only change how you can approach combat, but also allows you to access new areas in the world that were previously out of your reach. There will be 12 masks in total, 6 great kanohi masks and 6 noble kanohi masks.

  • INTRICATE COMBAT
    Master in-depth combat mechanics against challenging enemies. You can freely switch between your masks even during combat, allowing for even more depth. The combat system takes some inspiration from the Dark Souls series, while still beeing its own thing.

  • QUALITY VISUALS
    High-quality visuals that aim to match or surpass the visual quality of the old LEGO Bionicle promotional videos. The goal is to make you feel like you stepped into one of those promo-animations. Featuring highly set-accurate modelling aswell as the use of photogrammetry for alot of the environmental assets to make the world of Bionicle come to life.

  • IN-DEPTH CHARACTER PROGRESSION
    Greatly customize your character through different stats and disks (perks). Create a wide variety of viable builds and play your character like you want to.

  • MULTIPLAYER
    While the game is a singleplayer experience first, you can however join up with up to six other players and explore the island of Mata Nui together. The best way to describe it is as a singleplayer RPG that can be played in multiplayer if desired.

  • EXPERIENCE THE STORY OF BIONICLE
    Experience the beginning of the legend of Bionicle and discover a world with a wholly unique atmosphere and narrative.

I like all the nods and inspiration to the first online point 'n click game in the level design here, but also to the rest of the original series through the game mechanics (finding masks for new abilities for example). This makes me wonder why LEGO never resurrected that series simply as video games when so much thought was put into it back then.

Btw, those models and animations look really good. :)
