If you haven’t played it, The Lego Movie Ninjago Video Game plays similarly to other Lego video games inspired by series, mixing action with exploration. You unlock new characters by playing and there’s a new skill system that lets you increase characters’ movesets. While it is based on the movie’s story, it also includes elements from the Lego Ninjago property in general. It can be played alone or with another person.
Other recent efforts from game developers and publishers to get people to stay home include art of various Final Fantasy XIV characters in their homes, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 social distancing, and Nintendo wallpapers. Also, as far as free games go, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is temporarily free on the Epic Games Store.
