Does it actually say anywhere that it's being sold? Seeing as it's essentially meant to be advertising for Bombshell, it's likely it may be released for free. That'd also avoid the mess of sorting out having to pay all the people who contributed I eduke32 over the years and all the liscences and everything.
That's funny because I heard a rumour saying some people were working on this game for free. Which also led me to think it might be a (short) free game. This is just an anonymous tip though, nothing I can confirm or we should take as solid truth.
However I think that ,even if the game is
free, and whether it is long or not, it's still a marketing product advertising the other Bombshell game.
So imo there is no reason people working on this game, or the people who made the engine the game is using, should not be paid.
That'd be like telling an advert agency they won't be paid because customers don't have to pay to look at the ad they made.
This is very different from a mod or a TC. It's still something that will bring publicity and recognition to 3DR/Interceptor, and that will led to financial revenues for the company, even if not directly with this game itself.
For instance people will discover Bombshell thanks to the prequel and then will buy the other Bombshell game, and may check any other game 3DR/Interceptor made, etc
