"Today, InstantAction informed employees that it will be winding down operations. While we are shutting down the InstantAction.com website and Instant Jam game, Torquepowered.com will continue to operate while InstantAction explores opportunities with potential buyers for Torque. We thank all of our past and current customers for their support."

Quiet a sad day for such a well known brand in the 3d game engine space! Goes to show how competitive and tight the market is in that sector.

Did you mean Gamebryo?
Hadn't heard about that. Where did you see that news?

Sad about Torque. Unity3D just came along and drank their milkshake.
Better pricing, the free versions and running multi-platform were all great ideas to get people working with their software.
