I didn't think you were impressed with the UE SDK Blackheart?
Are you coming around to thinking that it would be a good idea for GPB and or Piboso's projects as a whole, or are you still thinking that Piboso could ever match the capabilities and ease of development of the UE SDK dev package?
BTW.... The UE SDK is now available for devs to earn $1 Million before paying the 5% royalty on any units sold. Surely a no-brainer decision for devs now rather than creating their own game engine, wouldn't you agree?
Unity are stuffed now mate. I cannot see were they would go now with their SDK except for those that would be stubborn enough to want to continue using it.
The very least they'd need to do would be to match the deal epic have done with their UE SDK, but then, with Unity, one has to still buy all those expensive third party add-on's before developing a game is practical together with no guarantee that those add-on's will ever be updated to keep up with advances..... I really can't see Unity lasting the next 3-5 years now.
You are missing all the other aspects of working with game engine of a type like Unreal or Unity. All such products have some quirks and drawbacks. I know at least one high caliber developer who said that working with UE 4 was a nightmare for 3 years straight, and he would not go back to it ever again, as opposed to Unity which was much nicer in that regard.
All in all, as achievements of Epic are undeniable, I believe there is still a lot of space for competition.
