The license of the NUSoftware Game Engine is based on the zlib/libpng license. Even though this license does not require you to mention that you are using the NUSoftware Game Engine in your product, an acknowledgment would be highly appreciated.

Also, NUSoftware Game Engine uses irrKlang as part of its sound engine, which is free for non-commercial products only. See the irrKlang License for further information.

It is always possible to build a version of the NUSoftware Game Engine that omits some of the third-party libraries. Doing so will leave you with a copy of the NUSoftware Game Engine that lacks the functionality provided by that particular library, but which otherwise works fine. Because of this, if you are about to start any sort of major development with the NUSoftware Game Engine, it would be wise to look at the licenses of the third-party libraries that the NUSoftware Game Engine uses. Decide which licenses you can comply with, and which you cannot. Then, simply don't use the parts of the NUSoftware Game Engine which are provided by libraries whose licenses you cannot comply with.

Yes, you can make commercial games. But if you do, you need to strip out those third-party libraries that say you can't use them in commercial games and you're responsible for checking that yourself.
