Minifigs MMO - 2012 Financial Statements

Post by le717 on Fri 03 May 2013, 5:33 pm

Funcom released more info on the Minifigs MMO in their 2012 financial statements on April 30, 2013, and it has some surprising info.









And yes, those are Gnarled Forest shacks from LEGO Universe in the first image, and a redesigned Futuron monorail.

This was also said in the report.

Funcom wrote:
After signing the license agreement in June 2012, a core team of highly experienced developers immediately went to work on customizing Funcom’s proprietary Dreamworld technology for use in the game. In the months that followed the team made amazing strides in the development of the game and in just a few months the team had completed a fully playable alpha version of the game. Thanks to Funcom’s robust internal development tools and a streamlined and highly efficient collaborative process with the LEGO Group, the team has been able to create LEGO themed content at a very impressive pace.

The game sets players off on a grand adventure through themed worlds that are built -- brick by brick, piece by piece - using LEGO materials. Players will visit locations such as Medieval world, Space world, Pirate world and Mythology world, where they will battle enemies, collect bricks and develop their characters. Players take control of up to several different Minifigures such as the DJ who drops sound speakers on his enemies or Grandma Visitor who can summon a forest on top of enemies and have the big, bad wolf show up to protect her!

...

Funcom and the LEGO Group will work together to make the game available to consumers in their online channels and will be coordinating activities to provide a broad and enhanced experience for the product line. The game will be a prominent part of the LEGO Minifigures online experience which already has millions of unique visitors every month.

I am very happy right now. Very Happy

This game will let you explore, more or less, every LEGO theme that has been released on the previous LEGO games. If it includes puzzles and minigames so am i in to try the game out once it releases. I wonder how the mnifigures will look. Like LEGO Undercover or LEGO Chase begins, personally i like the Undercover minifigures more than any other released LEGO game so far.

Looks more surprising than the first screenshots. I'm looking forward to these!

"Block by block and piece by piece, Funcom is

its fi rst beta phase during the fi rst half of 2014"

^^ Means it got moved back a quarter...

It looks pretty.

Oops, wasn't thinking straight at the time. I meant now it's 2014, not 2013? My fault. Razz

No it may not feel the same, however it will definetly include some of the old features with LEGO universe like a chatroom and a fan-building area. The thing that could had done better were the missions, i would like them to be more and be related to the story in a bit, it were pretty easy to finish all the mission in one month, the only reason i stayed on LEGO universe was for getting Contact with my friends there, there is still have them on facebook and skype,
.

I cannot wait either! Of course, it's not LU. It probably won't have building features like LU, but the graphics will be better, you can actually fly (did you see all the flying characters in that picture?!) and it's still a LEGO MMOG, so it'll be fun. Very Happy

Technically, a chat room isn't an LU idea, it's in every MMO (even Club Penguin! D:)

They did say they had a fully-playable Alpha, so Beta might be later this year. But maybe not July. I just wonder how someone would go about getting a Beta code...

probably sign up by email to get lucky to receive a key.
(like funcom did with othe rgames, and like LEGO did with other games. )

What other games did LEGO do it with besides LU and a racers web game (via MLN)?

LEGO Universe was through email and before that using the LKC, Racers web game was through MLN, but there was another period before it as well if I can remember that right.

It was a type because in the previous report it stated that the game will be in beta 3Q 2013 and the game will be released 1H 2014. In the second report it stated again that the game will come out 1H 2014, and then had a type that said beta would be in 2014 instead of 2013. So it's clear that it's a typo considering that the game can't come out before it's beta. lol Razz

And if I remember correctly it did say 3Q 2013 in another place on that huge report, which would be another reason why beta is around July. Another reason is that if they have a fully playable alpha then it is clear that beta will be in July.

Wait did I miss something? They're gonna be a new LEGO game? Not sure if I read this wrong, but you can't choose your character's look? That sounds kinda... lame? It'll never live up to LU, so I will probably not pay to play. I'll do beta though!
