Thats not bad.

Actually, they can beat Unity3d.
Game Industry is a trillion dollar Industry (bigger than movies), and the sudden rise of small indie companies producing big profit producing games. This offers a great win win for both parties.

Unity3d is super cool. But So is Cry Engine and Unreal. They are tools. Each can make a blockbuster game, each does make blockbuster games each year.

Profit sharing of 5%. That is a great "Offer".
A game can take a considerable amount of time. Ureal understand this, they are offering the developer free development time, and share in the risk (if you make money, they make money. If you don't make money, they don't make money) Pretty cool deal.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

@Naji
No, it's not. It's still $1,500 or $75/month + IOS ($1,500 or $75/month) + Android ($1,500 or $75/month)

@shinkan

Depends on the edition.
Unity 5 Personal Edition is free to use and to deploy to all platforms WITH the exception that it will add a Unity Splash screen to the beginning of the game. A small price to pay given the power of Unity.
Unity 5 Professional Edition is the one you have to pay for, though I would argue that the subscription model at 75/month is more than reasonable and is comparable to other subscription based platforms like Adobe Creative, etc.

Quote from Unity Website:
Unity 5 Personal Edition includes all engine features: everything that’s new in Unity 5, all the top-tier features from previous releases that are loved by the pros, and deployment to all platforms (with the new Personal Edition splash screen).


I'm excited to see what Unity 5 will be able to do in the near future. They're pushing pretty hard for the ability to export projects as WebGL HTML5 games without the need for the conventional browser Unity plugin.
