A Standard Licence for DragonRuby Game Toolkit free for 33 hours?

https://itch.io/s/48411/dragonruby-game-toolkit-hacker-news-celebration

Edit: If you bought the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality on itch.io, then you already own it.
However

Note: Projects in this bundle are hidden in your library by default untill you first access them in order to avoid flooding your library. You can return to this page at any time to access any projects you wish to show in your library.

Unless you've "downloaded" it from that bundle, it will appear as not bought :(

Thanks for the update. It turned out that although I looked at the free content this month, I didn't get any of it. So your message not only helped me get the new addition but all the others, too.

If you bought the "Lunar New Year Mega Bundles" back in February, you may be able to get an updated version of

  • Paint Craft (Drawing & Coloring book engine)

called

  • Paint Craft 2020 (Drawing & Coloring book engine)

for free.

https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/templates/packs/paint-craft-2020-drawing-coloring-book-engine-188062

Edit:
I found a forum post telling who could get the upgrade:

https://forum.unity.com/threads/released-paintcraft-multiplatform-coloring-book-drawing-app-constructor.404998/page-12

by nicloay (2021 feb 05) #561

Everyone who purchased the plugin after ~ December 6 has a free upgrade to the 2020 version. I'm sorry I was working hard to make the new release before the lunar new year so I didn't have time to make proper anoncement. I'll do that soon.

Then I might have been lucky.

You did buy the bundle, and have it activated on the Unity user you are logged in with?

I think I misread your original post. didn't realize you had to buy a prior bundle to get this one. My bad.

Today's free Packt book is Learn Three.js - Third Edition.

That's an easier way to create 3D graphics on the web than WebGL, and here's a tutorial about creating a game with Three.js.
