Free to play
Not sure why but in a Steam Store. Dungeonlands became a free to play title.

Just saw that too, bit strange there was no announcement for this, what about the people who paid for the game?
Strange indeed.

Am I the only one that thinks if a game is "free-to-play" with access to only one level and has a pass thats costs money, giving you access to all the levels, then it is simply what is traditionally called "a demo"? "The pass" has traditionally been called "buying the game"

Clever marketing there indeed.

the store page still has an option to pay 5 euro and access all stages so you didn't pay in vain. So how "free" is it?

This might be linked to the closure of the developer.

Not sure what free players miss out on, I think several levels are locked out if the store page is anything to go by.

Found this post on the Paradox forums:

In the new Free Admission Edition, Dungeonland’s colorful “DM Tower” stage will be available to all players free of charge, in both normal play and in DM Mode – where one player commands the park and its inhabitants against three “friends” they would like to slaughter. Three additional stages, the “Cannibal Kingdom,” “Arcane Kingdom,” and “Infinite Dungeon,” will be available by purchasing the in-game “All-access Pass.” Current owners of Dungeonland will be upgraded to the All-access pass for free, and all existing gift copies of Dungeonland will include the pass as well.

Those of us who bought the game before it went free to play got the "All Access Pack" in their accounts for free.

Another "free-to-play" game that, isn't.

Please, change this marketing strategy. You are fooling the players calling it free to play when it's just a demo.

Technically speaking it's not a demo and technically it is free to play. Free to play doesn't always mean the entire game is free to everyone. A very large majority of free to play entice people to play enough to want to spend money. This game is no exception.

Any chance to unlock the three additional stages for free? Or is it only different graphic?
Otherwise this is a demo.

This. The "free to play" model is generally "time vs. money", not "a minor part of the game for free and the rest paid for". If this brings more people to try their game and ultimately buy it, good for them.
Not a fan of this attitude towards the customer base. It's not a free to play game, it's clearly a demo, I'm not stupid and you shouldn't treat me like that.

To be fair, the DM tower is the best part of the game. It's more than what you'd normally call a demo.

IT IS F2P BECAUSE NO ONE WAS BUYING/PLAYING ANYMORE AND NOW THEY CAN MAKE MORE MONEY ON PEOPLE BUYING IN GAME ♥♥♥♥
Buearger Nov 12, 2013 @ 10:14am 
F2P because they wanted to keep the game alive. Yet that won't save it. Just saying.
