Perhaps there needs to be more information about the code so Svartalf can look into getting the game in good shape on Linux. If the physics engine is indeed closed then the code will need reworking for a more open engine. Also perhaps even get the rights to the data files negotiated as well
Bah. I thought we're getting the game in a playable state, not just the code. I can write the code myself if I want to (and looking at it makes me think I would be better at it too).
One would think 1 million bucks would be enough to make part of the game at least free beer :-/ They generated a lot of PR with this move, even though it turns out its nothing special, *and* got a crapload of money out of it.
the data assets (art, sound and etc.) are available in the mercurial repos... you can compile the game out the box I think. RealNC why don't you buy 5 games for a small amount of money? you get the games already working, if you feel the need to play right away...
@RealNC: yes, they are available in the repo, at least from what I've grabbed from the repo.
@Svartalf: they did an excellent work by anticipating... But one question remains... If Penumbra is owned by the Frictional Games, why Wolfire did convince them to release other indies' games src code? Did they all merged together, to form a big Indie gaming company?
