Cute gravity-bending platformer ROTA is now free and open source

By - | Views: 30,990

Always nice to see more developers open up their games. ROTA released back in 2022 is now not only free, but it's also been made open source by the dev. It was made with Godot Engine too, so could be an interesting one for people to learn more from a fully released game.

The developer didn't give any reasoning, their announcement on stores was short and to the point just mentioning it's free and open source now.

I bought this game a year ago and it was already open source from what I remember (seems like it happened in September 2022). It's always nice to see, even more when the engine itself is open source

Edit: here is the announcement
