“NeHe is widely regarded as the top online destination for learning OpenGL and is a long standing partner of GameDev.net,” said GameDev.net CEO Kevin Hawkins. “When Jeff Molofee recently announced his intention to sell the site, we immediately recognized that an acquisition by GameDev.net would ensure that this invaluable resource would be preserved and continue to grow.”
Under the terms of the acquisition, GameDev.net gains ownership of all content assets and copyrights associated with the NeHe website and brand. Jeff Molofee is granted license of the website and its content for personal use.
