Amnesia: The Dark Descent Source Code Goes Open Source

Frictional Games announces that the source code for Amnesia: The Dark Descent is now available as a GPL v3 open source release (thanks ResetEra). Here's the deal:
Modding has been a huge part of Amnesia. For instance, over the years The Dark Descent has accumulated over a thousand mods and addons on ModDB. This flood of user content has been amazing to see and we are extremely grateful for the whole community surrounding it all.

It is time we gave something back!

So today we are releasing the full source code for Amnesia: The Dark Descent under GPL v3:

https://github.com/FrictionalGames/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent

https://github.com/FrictionalGames/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs

The code release contains all the game code for both The Dark Descent and A Machine For Pigs. It also contains all editor code.

Very important note: This doesn’t mean that the game is suddenly free. It just means that people are free to use the source however they want as long as they adhere to the GPL3 licence. The game and all of its content is still owned by Frictional Games. Just like before.

Think of the release as “free speech”, not “free beer”.

Scariest game ever made. I look forward to seeing what comes of this.

Behind that I'd say Shalebridge Cradle in Thief Deadly Shadows .

and I'm loading up Thief 3 now to play one the best levels ever made for the 11-teenth time. Love you, 'Sneaky Upgrade' mod/patch.

oh man.. I never finished Shalebridge cradle.. and Thief 3? i was getting chased by something but was too scared to look what it was

No, that would be Outlast. Behind that I'd say Shalebridge Cradle in Thief Deadly Shadows . I know a lot of people stopped playing Outlast because it was scaring the shit out of them. Same with me. I probably got halfway through before I needed to stop.
Ha, I agree with this. I finished Outlast in 9 hours and was actually relieved when it wrapped up.

Maybe a graphical upgrade.

Already available, and it's glorious Check previous version notes for more information about the changes made in this mod. There are a bunch. This version is the final version, the creator even just posted that it's unfortunate the source only now just got released, as he's done.

Frictional posted:

Approved by Frictional Games!
"the amount of work that must have gone into this is impressive! We'll post this in our mod showcase channel on Discord!"

I think the original release of this was in June.
