I went and made my own engine and released a game with it. Nothing big, just a little freebie on itch -- https://speveril.itch.io/simplequest. I've got plans for more engine work (maybe even a release that other people can use!) and more games there.
The engine is pretty different than Verge in a lot of ways, but its design is definitely informed by Verge... stuff I liked and stuff I didn't like as much.
I'm also still occasionally helping Grue with Sully but I'm kind of a flake there. Sorry, Grue.
