Allowing you to keep all the profits from your newly created game up to $50,000. Anything above that mark and you will need to start paying Epic Games a 25% royalty on all money earned.
But considering you can download and use the Unreal Development Kit from free the deal has just made games development a little more attractive to the small start-up.
