by posted in News
Jul 11
2013

It’s been a big few months for the Marketplace team. In March we announced that a new license option would be available to WordPress themes and plugins. Since then, authors have been able to choose to license their WordPress themes and plugins as 100% GPL, instead of with Envato’s default split license.

Today, we’re extending that option to cover all theme and plugin categories that are associated with GPL-based platforms. This means that if you’re an author creating items with a framework that is licensed under the GPL, you can now choose to sell those items as 100% GPL on the Marketplaces.

If you’re a gamer that keeps an eye on new Kickstarter projects, you’ve probably heard of Energy Hook – a game all about swinging from skyscraper to skyscraper and running along walls. It’s created by the technical director and designer of Spider-Man 2: The Game, Jamie Fristrom, and shares the same core game mechanic, but with a greater focus on style.

Over at Tuts+, we’ve just published a new tutorial from Jamie Fristrom explaining how this swinging mechanic works. If you’re interested in making a game like this yourself, or just curious to look under the hood, check it out. And if you like the look of Energy Hook, contribute to the Kickstarter – it ends on Sunday!
