After asking the question “Who wants to pay $50 to play the prey demo in Linux” Windows pretendulator team, Falling Leaf Systems, which was later found out to be a team of one San Diego 19 year old, has ceased their Sapling program and released the source code for their Alky project under the LGPL:
It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Falling Leaf Systems, LLC. We set out over a year ago to provide users of both “old and unsupported” as well as “alternative” Operating Systems the ability to run the latest games for the PC. Unfortunately, Falling Leaf Systems was unable to achieve that goal.
However, every ending tends to open another door for opportunity and though we are saddened to announce our departure, we are almost as excited to announce the immediate availability of ALL source code for the Alky Project! It is licensed under the LGPL and includes both the orginal Alky Converter source used to convert the popular Prey Demo to run on OSX and Linux, as well as the alpha release of the Alky Compatibility Libraries which attempted to provide a DirectX10 compatible runtime for Windows XP.
We appreciate all your past support; Happy gaming!
