While Godot receives much of the - well deserved - attention when it comes to open-source, cross-platform game engines, another deserving contender is the Flax Engine that just reached v1.0 last year after going public in 2018.

Flax Engine 1.1.6217 was released today as its first post-1.0 / v1.1 series release. Flax Engine 1.1 brings its game editor to Linux, new spline tools, continued work on expanding the engine's networking support, new visual scripting features, a third-person shooter game sample, 2D/3D sprite renderer support, the ability to utilize volumetric fog particles, and other improvements.

Screenshots / videos of Flax Engine 1.1 can be found via the Flax blog. The full change-log for Flax Engine 1.1 along with source download links can be found via FlaxEngine on GitHub.

The Flax Engine is provided as free, open-source with full source code access. However, should you build a commercial game from it, there is a 4% royalty after the game earns $25,000 USD per calendar quarter. It's a quite straight-forward means of licensing it to fund its development.
