Counterplay Games Makes Duelyst's Source Code Free To Everyone If You're Keen To Do Some Developing
The original Duelyst team loves what Duelyst 2 creators Dream Sloth Games are working on.
Were you curious how Duelyst 2 was a thing but it wasn't being made by the Counterplay Games, the team behind the original Duelyst?
Apparently that's because multiple indie teams were already given permission to work with the original game's assets. Fast forward to today and Counterplay Games told PCGamer that they are thrilled by what the team at Dream Sloth Games are doing with their spiritual sequel (available on Steam for free).
That's not all the Counterplay team had to say though.
Starting now, the source code for the original Duelyst is now open source and royalty free. You aspiring developers that want to mess with the original game's assets can grab the files right now on GitHub. No fees, no royalties, no strings attached.
Lead Producer Richard Heyne posted an entire video (below) explaining where to get the files and all the things you are free to use them for... honestly, it's basically anything.
Make a new game, make new modes, host private servers, it's all fair game.
"We are experiencing some major changes in our industry: new technologies and consoles, and even massive consolidations that have occurred over the past couple of years. While only time will tell how these changes will alter the landscape, these shifts can potentially hit indie developers the hardest. That's why we want to recognize that these developers, be they sole individuals or small teams, are vital for the growth and diversity of our industry," said Heyne to PCGamer. "One way established studios can help is to release old source code."
Got an idea you've needed a little push to move forward? Maybe this can help!
