    Epic has released their game engine for free with the following stipulation:

    You can download the engine and use it for everything from game development, education, architecture, and visualization to VR, film and animation. When you ship a game or application, you pay a 5% royalty on gross revenue after the first $3,000 per product, per quarter. It’s a simple arrangement in which we succeed only when you succeed.

    Source 2 and Unity 5 both seem to be following suit. It looks like it might be a good time to be a game developer.
