Stormrunners

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is anyone familiar with the Mindstorms game Stormrunners? I had never heard of it until tonight in the video in this topic. Apparently it was made by Templar for LEGO prior to MNOG. Here is this intro video. Watching it was like watching a MNOG cutscene for the first time. I recommend anyone who loves the ambiance of MNOG check it out for a similar feel.

I don't recall hearing about it before, but the star ship looks familiar (although it could be a similar to the ship in Rock Raiders).

I thought it bore a striking similarity to the Nebulon-B from Star Wars Episode VI.

I recall playing this back when it was live. Was into Mindstorms a lot at the time (and played plenty of Lego.com games too). Another similar one was Robohunter. Believe that while the cutscenes were flash, the game itself was 3D-ish (you drove a little Mindstorms rover around streets on spy missions). Took a solid hour to load the game on a 28K connection, though MNOG had a decent wait between every scene too, ha!
