Unreal Engine Version?

  • updated

This is straight-up a new product request, but this package is currently the biggest reason I have for not switching to Unreal Engine. If something similar existed over there I would make the move tomorrow. It's such a great framework and I don't know how I lived without it for so long.

Recent Unity drama is motivating me to look for alternatives to Unity but Shapes is not something I'm willing to leave behind. I have not found an equivalent in Unreal. Tangentially related to this topic, I have also looked into Godot where i found some encouraging Draw APIs that might work out with sufficient effort. I am prepared to re-buy Shapes wherever an alternative is made available.

I'll probably port Shapes wherever I go next, if I do switch. Right now I'm still kind of in a limbo, waiting for (and fighting with) unity to revert this as soon as possible. The tricky thing with godot is that I'm not sure if there's a big enough audience to justify that work on my end, since I do need to make money from this. On Unreal's end, it would probably be significantly harder, since I can't use C#, but at least they have a storefront, so that infrastructure would make it more financially viable.

But yeah, I'm not sure yet, we'll see :(

the whole situation sucks
