There are three different licenses that you can use for The Machinery:

  • The Indie Free license is completely free for indie developers and includes all of The Machinery, except for the source code.

  • The Indie Pro license is exactly the same, but also includes the full source code of the engine and all associated tools. For this version we charge $100 $50 / user / year.

  • The Business version is aimed towards professional users. It includes the same stuff as the Indie Pro version except your support tickets will be prioritized. It sells at $900 $450 / user / year.

We define as an “indie”, any company who’s yearly revenue or funding is less than $100K/year. Until the end of the year 2021, we're offering all the paid licenses at 50 % off. If you buy a paid license now, you will keep this low price for the next five years.

All of the licenses allow for full royalty-free use of The Machinery. You can build and sell commercial games, tools, applications, and plugins. For more details, see our pricing page.

When you download The Machinery, you will be on the Indie Free license. If you do not fall in the "indie" category, you can still use this license to evaluate The Machinery, but you need to buy a business license to put it into production.
