About CRYENGINE
CRYENGINE is the first all-in-one development solution with truly scalable computation and benchmark graphics technologies. With CRYENGINE, developers are fully equipped to create standout game experiences, using the engine behind games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Crysis series.

The Famous CRYENGINE Sandbox editor is a production proven, third-generation real-time tool suite designed and built by AAA Developers. All development features of a CRYENGINE game can be produced, edited and played immediately with the “what you see is what you play” (WYSIWYP) system. The engine deals with the instant conversion and optimization of assets in real-time, enabling cross-platform changes to all elements of the game creation process. This increases the speed and quality of development, while significantly reducing the risk of creating multi-platform games.

Wwise from Audiokinetic is the world-class audio engine and integration tool that we’ve chosen to include with CryEngine. Used in AAA games across console, desktop and mobile platforms, Wwise provides a complete audio integration pipeline that we’ve deeply integrated into CryEngine. You can learn more about Wwise here. Wwise ships with CryEngine in Evaluation mode, allowing for projects with under 200 sound files and for non-commercial use. You must upgrade to a commercial license to ship your game.

How do I upgrade my Wwise license?
There are two ways to upgrade your license of Wwise. If your project uses under 200 sound files, you can use the Wwise Free Limited Commercial License. You can start the process by creating an account at the Audiokinetic website, and then you can request your Limited Commercial License key by creating a project here. Be sure to fill out the form completely, as it will need to be approved.

The other method is for projects that go beyond the 200 sound file limit of the Limited Commercial License. For these, please contact Audiokinetic directly to request a full commercial trial or purchase a full commercial license. Licensing price details can be found here.

As a special treat and to coincide with Halloween it is a fantastic time to show you something special we have been working on! Andrey KPyЗO and I have been busy creating some additional content to serve as an interesting companion piece to the Cursed Forest. This video includes an exclusive side-story with samples of the notes you will find in-game and an example of what will happen should you make a bad decision…

We hope you enjoy this and please bear in mind that the audio, models and location are only temporary for this demonstration and will not be included in the finished game. We would love to see your feedback in the comments, from what you thought of the notes to what kind of bad endings and wrong choices you’d like to be able to make in the game!
I also wanted to say a special thank you to our very talented voice actor Elfik Zohrabyan for starring in this video and another thank you to our skilled corrector Reanne Weavill for helping to translate our text into English.
Thank you again for all your support; now that we’re greenlit we’re going to work even harder to improve this game for you. We look forward to reading your feedback and team of NoosTyche wishes you a very happy (and scary) Halloween!

Well this EaaS is a colossal disappointment. Way to screw over your hobbyist fans while simultaneously doing very little for your indie fans all under the guise of being "indie friendly."
