Since 2005, Traveller’s Tales has built more than 20 Lego games, and for most of that time it’s focus has been exclusively on turning those bricks into videogames. Back in 2008, however, the studio set its sights on a movie tie-in for the newly-announced Hobbit adaptations. And then it proceeded to spend a lot of money trying to make that happen. 

Studio founder Jon Burton spilled the beans on his YouTube channel, GameHut, detailing the lengths Traveller’s Tales went to in the hopes of making a game that matched the movie as closely as possible.
