Recently Unity has made the brave decision to charge developers per install. I find it to be rather moronic. It truly proves that Unity is ran by greedy bastards who do not even care about their customers/game developers. I know this won't affect most people.. but... I think people should move to some other game engine, preferably one that's FOSS.. After all these idiotic decisions they've made in the past 5 years we shouldn't trust them.
Just to prove how stupid this is:
Let's say you've made a game which is very successful with 2 million installs and you've earned about 300k from the game. If I understood their idea correctly - they start charging money after you make 200k and the game gets installed at least 200k times. Sooo... you'd have to pay 0.20(2000000-200000) dollars. That'd be 360k dollars... almost twice as much than you've made. Ridiculous, right?
I truly feel bad for those developers who've been using Unity. Currently they're getting fucked in the ass by the corporation with no lube. I wish all of them the best, I really hope they are okay :) I understand how stressful this is, getting punished for literally no reason.
TL;DR: fuck unity
Idk if I understand the situation completely so if anyone wants to - please let me know more :)
