Yeah it's really that simple
If you aren't smart enough to do the math for how inconsequential this fee is, then you shouldn't be making video games and I'm glad you're abandoning your shitty projects
I too enjoy the "just trust me bro" style of accounting.
>BUT WHAT IF 1M+ $0.02 INSTALLS?!
even F2P games are exempt because they have to make at least $200k before any of the new fees kick in. modern game devs, as exemplified by their recent work, are fucking shitters that should die off or go mine coal.
Everyone's a temporarily embarrassed millionaire in the gamedev world.
The reality looks more like...
looks like slop
That's a 2007 flash game with better graphics. How did they waste 300k?
diversity hires probably
You're so fucking stupid it's unreal.
t. DooDoo Sudios
This looks like shit that I won't even bother pirating.
Holy shit that hook is awful.
There's absolutely nothing about this game's presentation that makes it look interesting or stand out. Looks like those mobile games you see in-game ads for. Also those level designs look like a mess.
>we made some mistakes a blew $300k
reminds me of that garden gnomestarter that ultimately admitted they used the funds for hookers wanna blow instead of making the game.
>even F2P games are exempt because they have to make at least $200k
even older releases/long tail games are exempt since it's $200k in the last 12 months.
This really only affects the fatcats and even then it's a small (less than 5%) royalty
The real issue is altering the terms of a contract that's already signed, that's it.
>The real issue is altering the terms of a contract that's already signed, that's it.
that's a pretty big it, and even bigger when it comes from a company that's pulled the shit its pulled in the past few years
>Implying OP actually makes video games
I work in software, which makes me more than qualified to know how delusional the average indie dev is
Yep, and my dad works at Nintendo.
The fact that it is possible to owe Unity more than your total revenue shows how ridiculous this fee is, regardless of many games being below the threshold.
Is this the damage control thread or the contrarian thread, cant tell anymore.
it's the controllian thread
Hate those fuckers.
>this is what counts for counter-memery
bait or not have a nice day
Enjoy going broke then when I pirate your game and spoof installs
Based. Unreal Engine would charge you an average of 15x times of what Unity would ever charge you.
Unreal is literally free unity marketer, they only bother to charge you if you make over a million sales, most small games will never make that threshold even over time, Unlike unity's threshold
Hi Epic shill, 5¢ has been credited to your Epic Games Store® account.
>Accuses ME of being a marketer
lel, enjoy your falling engine. Nobody besides the biggest cucks and companies will use your shit engine now
Not a game dev unity pajeet, enjoy being out of work when no studio wants to use unity anymore
sir please take your meds sir
Good morning sir
Based. I'm going to install your game (few times).
>$1 has been deducted from your bank account
>don't care still downloading IronSource installcore so some garden gnomes can sell my data and tell the government I'm a bad goy
>bad thing is actually le good!
Ganker really needs new material
Hiro should start charging people to make threads. 99 cents a thread.
If the thread hits bump limit that's another $2.
Posters have to pay to post images.
N-word passes are available for $5 a day.
Just make it so you have to have a pass to make a thread.
>99 percent of Ganker no longer posts
Not my problem
>he already paid to post
>instantly fixes the shitposter and evasion issue
I was already dumb enough to pay ten bucks to post on a shittier forum than this one. I would probably buy a pass if it was the only way to post here since I like this website.
>N-word passes are available for $5 a day.
>thinks there wouldnt be anything but threads filled with 400 n word posts
Ganker is one of the last few free websites and it's been confirmed multiple times it bleeds money.
passes don't cut it. At some point some kind of monetization like that will come around
>Ganker is one of the last few free websites
Lol, lmao even
Unity is still the best indie game engine. Developers with 10+ years in the ecosystem are not going to jump ship to a FOSS prototype like Godot, no matter how many youtuber nodevs virtue signal on twitter.
>Jumping from a shit engine to another shit
Your mistake is using pre made engines in first place.
Overgrowth is one of the most prolific "hand made" 3D indie games that actually finished. It took over 9 years to release with experienced developers and is not even especially complex by modern standards. You are asking for every game to require a decade+ of dev time (with barebones graphics and feature sets) just so you can sniff your own ass about le real coders from the le good old days.
Not your own engine = not your game
Simple as that. Or you can back to east garden gnomenity's shit.
Damn guess I have to start hating Deus Ex because it's an Unreal game now...
>Not your own engine = not your game
just take the game assets and reassemble them elsewhere, bro.
the biggest retard in the whole thread
I will still use unity for now
but I hope this whole situation has pissed off enough devs to focus on making a proper unity replacement
godot is shit and should never be recommended, I need something that gives me access to my computer's power
Godot is better suited for specific cases. You should go for unreal if you seek performance, if anything, you were retarded for even trying unity to begin with.
urp performs best and gives decent image quality, I will stick with that
even hdrp isn't far off from unreal
stop defending these garden gnomes
I havent raised my eyebrows like this since that one time in 2001
>if you're from china then you are good cuz of Unity China regional branch is a separate entity from Unity Technologies (CEO former EA)
>if you're outside china then you're fucked
just raise your game's price by 0.20
Considering that there are steam cuts, it will need to be a bit higher.
You're ignoring the core problem which is insane telemetry built into Unity you can't disable.
>wanting people to boycott your game not on merits of your game but only because of the engine you chose to use
>retard twitter chud boycotts will accomplish anything
keep thinking that stupid game dev
it's only your livelihood hanging in the balance
If they're using this opportunity to shill for
retard who never wrote a line of code or retard who has written far too many lines of code
>FOSS is for trannies
Hmm, who could be behind this post
>he doesn't know
See two signatures from Godot, is that the connection?
Worst example I've ever seen of counter viral marketing on this board. Sage

(You) can't win and then drunk Russkies will come beat you to death with vodka bottles for wrecking their bandwidth on gay fools' errands
framework chads just keep winning
Don't forget guys, all you need to do to solve the problem is do this.
>DONT CARE STILL OBEYING MY gnomish MASTERS
damn unity shills on the board too
Don't care already uninstalled Genshin (pay pig player btw) and sent a message of protest to customer support.
I know the Pathfinder games are Unity, is the upcoming Rogue Trader also Unity?
it's fucking over 40kbros
This but unironically. Unity is the ONLY real choice for indie devs.
I will now install your game (100,000 times)
I think im going to find a round about way to sell my game so i dont get garden gnomeed, but im sticking with Unity only because the amount of documentation it has for making games.
Thanks. Ill be making moves to jump ship, but im keeping an old build of unity i have running since it can make games for my psvita.
I want to use unreal engine but you have to use epic store to launch the damn thing and it's so damn buggy on my computer.
OP here. Just wanted to add that I'm trans, btw.
>re-re-re-re-re-installs your game
Write your own engine.
>don't care still eating dicks
write your own code white man
Which of Unity's three conflicting UI solutions did you use to conjure up that image?
Just installed, pay up OP
Sure, if you enjoy being a cuck and flaunting it it really is that simple.
Post your game, so I can install it as many times as I want...
