Lego Island Remake

From the developer who brought you the remake of The Simpsons Hit & Run comes another remake that you’ll never be able to play: Lego Island.

Youtuber and developer Reubs has decided to remake the game in Unreal Engine 5, giving it modern visuals and a more “realistic” look.

First released in 1997 for PC, Lego Island is an open-world game where you have the option to play as one of five characters: pizzeria owners Mama and Papa Brickolini, their adopted son Pepper Roni, or police officers Laura and Nick Brick.
