Yes, you just need to request our evaluation version.
Support under all licences lasts 1 year. Extensions of support are available.
All licensees have access to updates to Mercuna to support new versions of either Unreal Engine 4 or Unity as they are released. This will normally provide the same functionality you had before, but gives you the freedom to choose which Engine version is right for your project.
Premium licensees additionally have access to new versions of Mercuna, which includes all new features.
We support PC, Mac and Linux, as well as consoles and mobiles including both iOS and Android.
We want to give a bit back to our industry by making Mercuna available to small, growing studios, so we offer an Indie Studio licence just for them. This is defined as any project having a development budget of under $500,000, which would be the total budget minus the sales and marketing budget. We will send you a feature complete version of Mercuna and provide basic support.
Once you have purchased a Mercuna licence, we will send access to the middleware which you can then integrate into your engine. The licence covers one game, with as many developers and platforms as you need for the duration of the project.
Mercuna is fully integrated with both Unreal Engine 4 and Unity via a plugin, making it very quick and easy to add to your project. The integration also looks to be part of the engine, so that using Mercuna is really straightforward.
We have written Mercuna so that, with some development work, it can be easily integrated into proprietary and other engines. Get in touch to discuss your own integration requirements.
Full source code is included in both the standard and premium licences. For indie licences source code is not included by default, but we are happy to discuss if required
Yes, the use of Mercuna is not restricted to games. Advanced pathfinding and smooth, spline-based steering can be perfect for fish simulations, flying creatures in immersive experiences and many other applications.
