To celebrate the release of Amnesia: Rebirth, the team makes both this game and A Machine of Pigs Open Source.
Frictional Games, the team behind video games like Amnesia or SOMA, has announced that from now on, players can download the source code for Amnesia: The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs. In a press release, the developer stated that the decision to offer the source code is due to the tenth anniversary of the video game’s launch, which occurred in 2010. In addition, the studio is about to publish a new installment of the saga, Amnesia : Rebirth. Developers will allow users to use the code as they wish, as long as they do so within the framework of the GPL3 license.
“Modding has been a big part of Amnesia,” explains Thomas Grip, Creative Director at Frictional Games. “For example, over the years The Dark Descent has accumulated over 10,000 mods and addons on ModDB. This flow of content from users has been incredible to watch, for which we are very grateful to the community as a whole. It is time to give them something in return.
