    I've been watching Maratis, really hoping itu gets worked on more. Glad to see an update rollin' through.

      Me, too. I like playing around with Maratis. I'm glad it's still developing.

        I haven't played much with it yet. UDK and Unity3D always seemed to be the winners for me - and the BGE. BUT if Maratis works I may dev some of the games my boys and I are planning ...

    I've been looking for a full-platform game engine; over the years, I guess. Great to know that this is in "production" still. I've gotten stuck to Stencyl the past few months, only to realize that you've gotta be a programmer to make something worth the market...I mean, time.
    This was on my list too; I'll have to revisit.
