Insurgent Games Makes All Games Free, Releases Everything as Open Source
Skeleton Key, Cryptose, teh internets, Aeropack, and Alphabet Blocks are now all free to download and source code is available
February 26, 2012
Earlier this week, Insurgent Games released their many celebrated iOS and Android games as open source projects, posting the source code for download on Github. This allows aspiring game developers to learn and build their own games from the code. Also, fans can download any game for free from the iOS App Store and the Android Market.Insurgent Games was founded in 2009 by Micah Lee and Crystal Mayer out of their San Francisco studio apartment. For a couple of years they happily made iPhone and Android games. They quickly realized that unless you’re incredibly lucky, it’s hard to make enough money developing indie mobile games to pay San Francisco rent. So Micah got a full time job and Crystal moved on to other things.
Now, several years later, Micah works for the Electronic Frontier Foundation defending internet users from evil, and Crystal is a freelance web designer. But Insurgent Games is dormant.
Since they’re not working on the games anymore, they decided to release them to the community. They hope their games will thrive and be reborn as bigger and better things. All of their games are licensed under the GNU General Public License.
