its sad to think this is the engine that was used to make that hideous excuse of a game Limbo of the Lost- still don't let that stop you from using the engine, I've used it and it rates right up there with Adventure Game Studio and the community is extremely helpful (to the point of which they basically programmed all of Limbo without knowing that the guy developing it was stealing their codes and using it in his own game)

If you're gonna use this engine, play nice, respect the community and don't steal other people's content--- else Bethesda Soft will come and sue you too :D. (and possibly Blizzard)

Pretty cool to see that the Wintermute Engine is on ModDB now. I wonder if we'll start to see more 2D adventure games.
