As announced earlier today, BuildBox are changing their pricing, and competitor Construct 3 responded with some next level trolling. First a small clarification on the BuildBox pricing: the 70% revenue share is on the free tier, the 30% is on the plus tier and the pro tier pay only 10%, making the licensing changes marginally less awful that initially reported. That said, if you do not like the new changes, Construct 3, another no/low-code game engine, are offering BuildBox customers a 6 month free license.
Details from the Construct website:
WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
