    Hello!

    Since the latest development on the horizon of the game engines have made engines with knows names free to use, is it worth to continue the development of Neo? Since unreal engine 4 and Unity 5 are now free and you could make games or movies with them and sell them, again is it feasible to continue?

    Hey Akira_San!

    You are right, those engines are now “gratis”.

    1) That does not change their maleficent proprietary nature that forbids you to use your four freedoms
    2) I’m doing this project for fun and I have no fun when using one of this ready-made solutions. I want to tinker 😀

    I will not stop working on Neo just because someone else decided to make their product “gratis”.
    Neo is not competing with Unity and Unreal anyway due to a lack of man-hour and money.

    Have a nice day!

    Good point! I still would like to see NeoEngine ready for a production stage. If Neo would compete with some engine, that would be the BGE, since some features are better implemented and its much more clean.
