Following widespread success with Lego Star Wars, Traveller's Tales is hard at work on Lego Indiana Jones, due out on consoles in 2008. We wouldn't be surprised to see it on PC and handhelds, either - the official website currently lists platforms as "TBA".
Announced at Comic-Con in San Diego, the new title will parody Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It doesn't sound like it will touch on the new Indiana Jones film, probably because making fun of old people is wrong.
Publisher LucasArts told Comic-Con that the Lego Indy game would boast the same quirky sense of humour, largely thanks to having the same team as the Star Wars games behind it, while TT director Tom Stone also sounds keen. "Indy also presents us with wonderful and memorable cinematic moments," he said. "The boulder scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark [done] in Lego is hilarious!"
TT is also working on a Lego Batman game, while Indiana Jones films still await proper news on LucasArts' own, George Lucas-aided Jones project, currently in development and due to deal with events a year after those in Last Crusade.
