I don't think the engine is good enough to attract much attention from serious developers.

Unless its cheap...

But still, humming along at 7fps in game test 1 on a system that'd cost about $1500 brand new isn't exactly a good advertisement for the game engine. Developers need engines that scale with hardware to bring in more users. Whether this engine can or not, I don't know... but if it runs like ass and doesn't look impressive on my system, its just going to be worse on most other systems.
