Jari Saukkonen of the Majik 3D project, an effort to create a 3D RPG based around a singlemultiplayer server, wrote in to announce that they’ve securedemployment from Taika Technologies to continue development. Unfortunately:
Due to the proprietary nature of these technologies there will be no morepublic source code access, preventing the release of new Majik 3D versionsunder the GNU Public License (GPL). This will not cause a copyrightviolation as Majik 3D’s current code base doesn’t contain any code notdeveloped by the core members. Naturally the prior versions that have beenreleased under the GPL will remain open. Despite the proprietarytechnologies the game itself will always remain free of charge.
The entire press release can be read here; it goes on to state Majik will utilize the SurRender 3D library (which is being utilized in Win32 commercial game projects, such as Westwood’s FPS Command & Conquer: Renegade).
The version 0.4.0 Linux source code base is available for download at:
