New Games possible?

Subject: New Games possible?
by Arcane5150 on 2010/6/5 14:36:43

I saw someone did a port for the Gish game into aos4.0. I just read on Slashdot that they have released their last four projects as open source. The newest is a game called Aquaria, and it looks real neat.

I bet someone is working on a frontend currently, would be a neat addition:

"Aquaria has gone open source under the GPL! Now all four of the games that pledged to open in the Humble Indie Bundle are officially open source -- the others are Lugaru, Gish, and Penumbra Overture."

Getting the source:
You can grab the source from the Mercurial repository here:

http://hg.icculus.org/icculus/aquaria/

Everything you need to know about Mercurial can be learned from Joel Spolsky's tutorial at http://hginit.com/ ... it's a fast read, and funny, too.

While many Mercurial and git clones will likely pop up, this repository will be updated with good patches, changes, fixes, and improvements from the community.

Getting the game data:
The game data is not shipping with the source code. Please buy a copy of the game (your copy from the Humble Indie Bundle will work just fine).

Now, all those demos are pretty nice graphics and Overture is a nice physics engine, what are the possibilities we'll see ports of these before the x1000 comes out.
