Frictional Games announces
that the source code for Amnesia: The Dark
is now available as a
). 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:
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”.
