    License the Europa Engine, and get your work published on Gamersgate

    We have now investigated the idea we had back in january, and that was so enthusiastically recieved. Our lawyers have looked it through and finalised a combined licensing and publishing contract. We will be making the sourcecode of the europa engine available for those interested in developing in it. The europa engine was the engine that powered the eu1&2, victoria, crusader kings & Hoi1/2, as well as their expansions.


    If any individual, team or group are interested, then contact us at enginelicense (insert an at here) paradoxplaza (a dot here) com , with what you want to do, and we'll take it from there.

    But would the code for the games themselves be released too?
    (Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm not sure of the difference between the engine and the game itself. )

    Way cool.

    Will the content from the games be included as well? And will you release tools you used for development, like eg. mapping tools?

    Would it be too much to ask for an (rough) overview of terms & conditions?

    This is a very interesting development. I suppose thorough proficiency with C++ would be needed to work with the engine or are there tools to work around that?

    Any ways, I can see lot's of interesting stuff come from this.

    EDIT: Just found the older thread, so reading up now.
