Growing up, I had a special battery powered Lego brick that made a variety of insect-like buzzes and blips that surely annoyed the hell out of my parents. While putting the audible power of a goose's honk in a box of Legos might be a brick too far, Untitled Goose Game now has a pretty good chance of getting its own Lego tie-in set.
Lego Ideas, first launched as Lego Cuusoo in 2008, is the building toy company's portal for soliciting ideas for sets from the public and turning them into official products. Right now an Untitled Goose Game submission is performing very well there. Created by user A Fellow Player, the set depicts the first scene of Untitled Goose Game, where the titular goose wreaks havoc on the poor groundskeeper's peaceful garden.
In a statement to IGN, House House developer Jake Strasser says the team is "very very excited" about the prospect of seeing Untitled Goose Game honored with a Lego set. "We'd actually talked just after release about submitting our own design to Ideas," says Strasser, "so it was a very nice surprise when this popped up last week!" With House House on board, it's more up to Lego to decide whether or not the set's worth making.
Right now the project has just over 2,800 votes on Lego Ideas, and it needs 10,000 in order to make it to the official review stage. Submissions based on video games and other bits of pop culture meet the 10,000 vote threshold pretty frequently, but so far the only video game to have made it through the entire process from pitch-to-release is Minecraft. Lego later followed up the initial Ideas submission with a whole line of Minecraft sets.
The good news is that Untitled Goose Game doesn't necessarily need to be approved through Lego Ideas to end up receiving an official Lego rendition. In 2013, a submission based on Portal reached the review stage and ended up getting turned down. Two years later with the release of the toys-to-life crossover game Lego Dimensions, Lego released an add-on pack with models of Chell, the Aperture sentry, and the companion cube.
Still, even though Untitled Goose Game was something of a pop-culture phenomenon upon its release and has sold quite well, it's not on the same level of popularity as Friends or The Big Bang Theory, which have both been immortalized in plastic through Lego Ideas. That's why you should give Untitled Goose Game your vote if you want the set to become a reality, if only to let The Goose loose in Central Perk or Sheldon's living room.
