Online games publisher Funcom has signed a license agreement with the LEGO Group to develop a massively multiplayer online game based on the LEGO Minifigures franchise.
Funcom and the LEGO Group will work together to develop the new MMO, which will feature characters from the LEGO Minifigures line including a ninja, a surfer and a vampire, among others.
“The market for family-friendly online experiences intended for children and youngsters is brimming with potential,” says Trond Arne Aas, chief executive officer, Funcom. “Being able to work with a world-renowned brand such as the LEGO brand to develop an MMO for this audience is incredibly exciting to us as game developers and for Funcom as a company. This is source material we all know and love and we simply cannot wait to get started working with the LEGO Group on realizing this exciting project.”
