    Cryengine or Cyengine? :3

  2. Killswitch says:

    And yes, any game engine is allowed.

  3. Spiridios says:

    At one point the wording was you were only allowed to use engines that were freely available to anyone or had a free/trial version that allowed for publishing games. The current wording is “All publicly available libraries and middleware are allowed.” I doubt Cryengine 3 counts as publicly available.

    • Codexus says:

      The CryEngine is publicly available. To quote their page: “Anyone can now download a full version of the best All-In-One Game Development Engine, for free and use it without charge for non-commercial game development.” If that doesn’t count, I don’t know what does 😉

  4. Codexus says:

    Yes, you can, all engines allowed and you can just share the project, that’s what people using Unity and Gamemaker do.

    In fact, I think Unity pro(and other commercial engine) should be forbidden. I haven’t seen any entry using it, so it’s not a big problem…

    • Osgeld says:

      I really dont see why, if you paid for an engine it does not mean your game is not going to suck, probally has a higher chance of sucking cause its this big complex thing meant for teams of developers and million dollar budgets with development times measured in years not hours

    Another question: are games using the provided assets (that come with Cryengine ) like sounds, particle sprites, sounds, models, textures etc eligible for the dare or would this count as premade content and force the entry to the Jam section?

    Thank you!
