A Robot Named Fight! source code released

By - | Views: 21,335

The developer of a nicely reviewed metroidvania called A Robot Named Fight! has released the source code, hoping that others can learn from it.

Currently though, it's not fully open source as they have it under their own license but they made it clear they're considering putting it under something like the GPL if they can. It also uses the Unity game engine, so it still relies on a proprietary game engine but it's still a good step and nice to see more developers consider open source.

Quoting: elmapulwe dont need the runtime to be opensource to make an code opensource, if we follow that logic, then we cant licence anything under GPL for windows.

maybe there are some incompatibilities that im not aware of, but i dont think so, if gpl contamined the runtime then an single program for windows being GPL (even if not written by microsoft) would mean the entire source of windows would need to be opensource.
No, this is covered by the system library exception:

Unity is not a system library though.
what count as an system? an runtime to run an application?
