(Re: I will work for PEANUTS!)

If a group of us ever decided to get together and make a game, I don’t
think it would be entirely out of the realm of possibility to purchase
one of these dev tool suites (the cost of purchase ofsets the time
requirements for building an engine from scratch). I for one wouldn’t
mind getting involved in such a project (I’m a freelance game designer
with game industry experience). Of course, the first step in developing
a game (from my experience) once an idea is established is to develop a
design document. No sense spending money on R&D related stuff before a
design doc is finished. 😉
