Massive Monster has pledged to leave Unity in the event of these changes. It said on X — and again in the aforementioned TikTok — that the team would experience delays for its projects that were intended to be built on Unity, because the team would have to learn how to build games with a new engine.
Massive Monster explained at the end of his TikTok that the video was a Cult of the LambThe update process is ongoing. It shared a little peek at what’s to come: a little green frog… um… straining at its stools. That tidbit was also attached to the developer’s message to Unity: Quit being stinky.
