Paradox Interactive has announced that it is releasing the engine used for the Hearts of Iron series and Europa Universalis II to indie developers, with download service GamersGate also offering space on its portal for the resulting titles. Paradox says its engine "has been the focus of significant financial investments over the years," with CEO of Theodore Bergquist adding, "This initiative is a way for us to give back to the gaming community by facilitating for game developers to turn their hobbies into lucrative projects." No pricing or licensing information has yet been released, but the announcement says the developer will "set a few minimum criteria" for interested parties, where GamersGate will give "anyone interested... a shot at using the technique to develop games and then sell them" via its portal. Added Bergquist, "Through GamersGate, creative gamers worldwide will be given access to a development tool that will allow them to fulfill their game developer ambitions while getting access to a global distribution network without the costs and risks that are normally involved in game development and distribution."
