Back in June the developers of Fishards put out a bit of an ultimatum: fight them in-game and win to make the game open source, or they will nuke the game from orbit.

Thankfully, the community came together, and won. So now Fishards has been made open source, and it's still free to play on Steam too.

A good chance for people to learn from a complete and released game.

It has Native Linux support and is rated Steam Deck Playable. Perhaps now someone can put in a few fixes to get it bumped up to Steam Deck Verified, and keep expanding it. The game uses Godot Engine, so there's nothing stopping a willing developer having a look to see what they can do.

Always nice to see another game become open source to ensure it can live on forever.

I didn't take part but I wonder how hard the devs fought. ;-)
Anyway it'll be nice if community fixes and expansions find their way to the Steam version as well.
