+ - Indi game studios pledge to go Open source->

Submitted by conares
conares writes: The Humble Indie Bundle experiment has been a massive success beyond our craziest expectations. So far, 131,770 generous contributors have put down an incredible $1,210,115. Of this, contributors chose to allocate 30.88% to charity: $373,743 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play Charity.

Now it's our turn to give back. As of 5/11/10, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, and Penumbra Overture pledge to go open source. We are preparing the sources right now and will be releasing them ASAP. We spent last night preparing Lugaru and it is available now. The code is still a little rough (no Visual Studio project yet, for instance) but hopefully with the help of the community we can rapidly make it more accessible to everyone.
