Unity free is perfect for individual hobbyists. You can even sell the games you make with no royalties nor you have to pay for the Pro license, only when you earn more than US$100,000 in a fiscal year is when you may need the Pro license.
The free version can build for Mac, Windows and Web, and you can buy iOS and Android basic licenses for $400 each.
Guys, go check out Unity3D, so you can vote "Very low, everyone can license an engine" or something around that.
The video cuts at 30 seconds for me.
Very good art there
