0 A.D. Open Source!

July 13th, 2009 by Crusader

Thanks to the many people who let us know that Wildfire Games have announced that their Age of Empires-inspired real-time strategy game 0 A.D. is now an open source project:

Wildfire Games is switching from a closed development process to open source, making the game’s code available as GPL and the art content available as CC-BY-SA. People are encouraged to reuse and learn from and improve our work. We are not releasing a playable game, but we want to show what we have achieved and make it easier for more people to get involved in bringing it closer to completion.

If you’re interested in contributing, check out the Getting Started guide at the project wiki.

    That is slick – I wander how long before we see it in our distributions?
