It's not often you see a game go from free-to-play to not free-to-play -- or at least you don't see it from entire games, as opposed to special "subscribers-only" servers or whatnot. But that's the route Funcom is going with LEGO Minifigures Online, the currently F2P LEGO-inspired MMORPG, which has been in open beta for a while and will fully launch on June 29.

According to the game's FAQ, players who have spent any amount of money in the game's cash shop will receive the full, paid version of the game on the 29th, which will include a fully voiced guide and improved tutorial. The FAQ says that the price has not yet been set, but a press release for the game lists $29.99 as the price for PC, Mac, and Linux, and $4.99 for the Android and iOS versions.

I played a little bit of LMO and it was pleasing enough, though probably not aimed at my particular demographic. That makes it even stranger, it would seem, that Funcom would "un-free" a game meant for younger players. What do you think of the move?

Better make it b2p rather than p2w or pay to survive some incredibly hard bosses.

Not sure why they would do that other than a cash grab maybe the game isn't doing so well.
