When Prison Architect is completed

Postby ryacko » Thu Sep 19, 2013 8:15 am

Can you guys do the greatest deed, and release the source code to all your alpha backers once the game is complete? Same license as you released your previous source codes on. Although subversion is a bit tricky to fiddle around with, so I'd prefer it if it was in a zip file.

If you release the source code, this would mean... well. A Dwarf Fortress engine for everyone. It'd be fantastic.

It would be a nice reward for those who paid full price, betting on Introversion's success.

They've said the source code will be released eventually, though it'll most likely be at least a few years after the game is finished.

As madman said it will eventually be released and probably at another cost especially with all the deals that have been going on with the humblebundle and steam.

Well, I'm sure they can keep track of the original people who paid over $40.

Source code access wasn't included in any tier, so if you want it you'll most likely have to pay for it seperately. Also, if we never see the tech in Subversion used in a game we might never get to see the source code for it.
