Just thought I'd point out that this engine is not news, it's based on Cube2, and it has (or had) license terms that don't respect the Four Freedoms. So yeah...

Afaik Cube2 code was under permissive license for a long time (always?) but assets had NC clause.

No, Sauerbraten had/has assets under NC. Cube2 is just the engine. Platinum Arts Sandbox is or was nonfree in the strictest sense, but Cube2 (the original engine) is zlib licensed and nothing more. The Bananabread project is Cube2 with FLOSS assets and Emscripten support, and it's probably the cleanest way to get the Cube2 engine.

Also I thought I should mention that Wouter probably didn't make this differentiation initially, the community did. Projects like Bananabread strip the nonfree assets away from Sauerbraten to get the core they call Cube2 and build on that.
