    I’d move the fuck away from Unity even if they did roll back all their latest bullshit.
    It’s only a matter of time before they pull another stunt like that.
    Remember, their shitstain of a CEO, surrounded by his troupe of yesmen, all thought this was the best idea ever.

    Is it possible that those people who sold millions of shares are going short on unity stocks?

          2000 shares is not millions… that’s less than $100K at the current share price. For scale, the CEO was paid over $8 million in stock in 2022, of which he sold about 50000 shares over the course of the year, which would translate to roughly $2 million worth, which I assume means he’s holding many more shares.

          I just don’t see it. Seems far more likely that he just regularly sells shares as income.

          I do agree the other two are more scummy than the CEO.

    While they are porting to Godot, those Devs can stop updating their Unity installations & keep the old ToS.

      I heard unity removed the clause which states dev can keep the old term.

      These companies can’t port to Godot as it doesn’t support the software stacks they use and the platforms they target (mobile).

      With the size of the players involved, it’s much more likely they go to Cocos2D in the short term, and that something new pops up in the long term to act as a proper Unity replacement.

    Mobile games don’t qualify as games. They’re riddled with micro transactions and ads, and I would know… I’m complicit in this, as I’m translating their games, of which the cash shops are a noticeable chunk.

    May unity milk them till the udder produces nothing but pus.

      What uh…. Games are not riddled with micro transactions these days? Do you consider console/pc games riddled with micro transactions not games?

      What is your definition of a game?

        Games before 2010. Nowadays: Elden Ring, Baldurs Gate 3, Armored Core 6. Games where the publisher doesn’t try to nickel and dime you exist.

        Little Inferno. Pathos. Shadowrun & Shadowrun: Dragonfall. Most everything on FDroid.

        I have a ton of mobile games from Humble Bundle that don’t have any ads

      I would say that the most obnoxious games live on mobile but think it’s going to hard the other way to say good games on mobile don’t exist.

      Mostly you have to pay for the good ones which is true of most things in life. I say this because I’ve been playing Root, Kingdom Two Crowns and the Rusty Lake games this week on my tablet and feel like a lot of people also play quality things not crap on mobile devices

          Not everybody’s cup of tea but genshin impact is unironically a very good game. I was extremely skeptical at first but got drawn in by the world building, the soundtrack, the combat system, and it also filled the void of a new world to explore that WoW left behind after I quit.

      Agreed, there are very very few actually good experience on mobile and most of those got ported to PC. Too bad non mobile devs have to suffer because Unity see’s a easily exploitable goldmine in mobile gaming.
