Voxeliens, a game I covered back in 2012 has gone open source

Voxeliens [Official Site], a game I haven't seen much on since I wrote about it back in 2012 has officially gone open source a few days ago. It's a retro-style arcade shooter and it's essentially a 3D voxel-based version of Space Invaders.


The source is under the MIT license and hosted on bitbucket. The developers say it may be difficult to compile on Linux, as it was originally a commercial game and they haven't really put much effort into compiling it on other platforms.

See here for the announcement.

It'll probably need porting to Qt5 and SDL 2 (from Qt4 and SDL 1.2) looks fun though and it isn't a big download

Just me asking dumb questions. But what would happen if it would not be ported?
