Congratulations Garage Games. I am pleased.

Last week I wrote about the state of Indie Game Development and my disappointment in Garage Games due to them charging $1,000 for their new engine while Unreal and Unity released theirs for free.

While I still stand by my statement that Garage Games should be setting the Indie pricing and content standard instead of following corporate pricing modals (such as being out done by UDK), they have done a good job in changing the Torque 3D licensing fees. You can now purchase a binary version of the engine with all of the same features the $1000 Pro version contains (without the source code) for $250. If people purchase it during the month of December they can get it for a cool $100.

Nice job Garage Games, this is going to help indie developers get their hands on a high quality engine with a low budget. Hats off to you.
