Whats your opinion on GarageGames recent news? After trying to search decent 2D engine I found following intresting news topics:
1) Torque 2D MIT

2) 3 Step Studio
Very intresting screenshots: 3stepstudio.com/news/next-release-coming-soon-
3 Step Studio looks very nice to me, but only time will tell how it will work out.
