This is pretty sweet. Interesting licensing terms though. I like the fact that you don't have to pay up front, and they only make money on you if you actually make something worth selling.

Great if you want to built a prototype fast, but then you'd have to buy the real thing. Not bad for a small team, but 25% royalties sounds high.

From the UDK Commercial Terms: A team creates a game with UDK that they intend to sell. After six months of development, they release the game through digital distribution and they earn €15,000 in the first calendar quarter after release. Their use of UDK during development requires no fee. After earning €15,000, they would be required to pay Epic €2,500 (€0 on the first €5,000 in revenue, and €2,500 on the next €10,000 in revenue). On subsequent revenue, they are required to pay the 25% royalty.

On a lighter note, I can't believe udk.com wasn't taken.

Or maybe it was and Epic bought it for absurd sums of money. ;-)

I'm excited. Now I have Unity and UDK to play with on top of SunBurn.
