Well, not necessarily. You don't HAVE to pay, but you may choose to in order to receive the ability to purchase virtual clothes for your penguin, decorate it's igloo, get into 'member-only-rooms' and more.

They only charge you to do this stuff because that's how they make money. They don't advertise on their site, meaning charging for membership is there only option.
