    Thank you Epic. I'm a bit dissapointed about the Unity community which come up with some conspiracies what dark intentions are behind this step.

    If You Love Something, Set It Free
    Golden Words!

    I think, for now all developers just have to to produce interesting projects, content, demo scenes, for support this fantastic technology.

    And I want to say, my team in this month will present 4 free content
    - 2 Audio packs
    - 2D Template Island of Adventure
    - 3D Template Interstellar

    In my heart, one engine - Unreal engine!

    Best regards!

    You sir just won this thread. Sorry for the +1-style post but I can't agree enough with this.

    No one forces anyone to buy a game they consider bad.

    Fathers learning about game development and teaching it to their kids. Now that sounds exactly like the kind of thing EPIC is hoping to achieve by making it free.

    Funny enough, that's what we're trying to do. I'm learning 3d in maya as well as learning unreal engine, one son is a music major, another is into story and level design, another is a concept artist, and my daughter is great with fashion design so she can contribute to character concepts. My wife is the business minded person in the family, so that's even covered, lol.

    I guess I'll throw my two cents in here. I'm a father of five and always wanted to get into game development as a kid. Now that my young ones are getting older, some of them have the same aspirations. The difference here is that the option of a free, AAA game engine was never available to me. Could I afford $20 a month so my kids can play around and learn the engine? Sure, but for some of us $20 is still a lot of money when you have bills to pay.

    This news is probably the best thing Epic could've done when it comes to training the next generation of game developers. Will we see **** games? Definitely, that's true of every engine that was ever created. But will they REALLY give Unreal Engine a bad name? Mostly likely not. The reason being that the average consumer doesn't look at a bad game and think about what engine it was made with. They just don't buy games from that developer anymore. The only people (for the most part) that would look at the engine are developers, and I have a really hard time picturing those developers looking down on the engine itself when they are all aware (or at least should be aware) that the guy making **** games is the one at fault.

    On top of all that, wasn't the subscription only good for one seat at a time? So if two or three of my kids wanted to learn the engine and actually release their product, that price of admission just went up. I say kudos, Epic. If I ever had a tough time deciding between Unreal or Unity, this move just laid it all to rest!
