The Equipment, a recreation engine we first lined in 2020 seems to have shut down and have accomplished so in maybe the worst approach attainable. On July twenty eighth, 2022 they made modifications to their EULA, then just a few days later despatched the next e mail to all of their customers (together with myself):

Hello All people,
Thanks a lot for supporting The Equipment.
Sadly, we’ve reached some extent the place it’s not attainable for us to proceed within the present route. Per Part 14 of the Finish Consumer License Settlement, the event of The Equipment will stop, all licenses are terminated as of 14 days after the date of this discover, and you’re requested to delete your copies of The Equipment.
We actually appreciated you being part of the Our Equipment Group. We hope we’ve been useful in a roundabout way to your growth wants. 
-Our Equipment

That is an particularly painful transfer to those who joined The Equipment in early entry as paying clients. This implies studios might probably have over a yr of labor invested in utilizing The Equipment and all that’s for naught now. As a substitute of granting a perpetual license to these paying clients, the EULA as a substitute states:

Upon the termination of your license, you have to instantly (a) stop all use of the Service and the Content material, and (b) destroy any copies of the Service or Content material in your possession, custody or management, together with any associated supply code and/or binaries of the Service or the Content material.

This horrible approach of shutting down a proprietary recreation engine is maybe the one simplest commercial that open supply recreation engines might ever ask for. You possibly can be taught extra about all the ordeal within the video under.
