Source code to be released!
As a part of humblebundle the source code is to be released if the game sales reach $150k. I'm not a coder myself but I'd surely took a peak into the internals. Not to mention possible modifications. Ah, while we're at this. Does the possible release of the source code imply permission to modify the game?

Puppygames products are on sale on Steam as well!

Yeah that's an odd thing to giveaway and for $150k target. No doubt it will result in various iterations of the games. Be pretty cool to tweak things at such a low level.

Was released over 2.5 years ago for revenge of titans

The Humble bundle's target is for all of the source codes, not just revenge.

Yes I know its all including droid. Just mentioning it incase someone wants the source code of a older version of titan today or the ulikely scenario it does not achieve 150k.

Got a bunch of improvements and fixes since the old RotT source went out. Hope somebody finds a use for the code. BSD license, if you wondered ("do what thou wilt")

cprince, could you share some rationale behind this decision? I mean, it's not everyday game devs release source code. It would be clear to me if it was some 'yet another survival FPS', or 'yet another blocky sandbox game' etc. But I know of nothing like your games, both in terms of mechanics and the overal polish/stability.

Well, I just thought people would be interested to play with it. Maybe someone will make a mod or two.
rim6o Dec 20, 2013 @ 12:51pm 
I see. Could you, perhaps, briefly explain why you don't consider it 'giving away the ace up your sleeve'?

As for moding, I've got some ideas myself :) but I am no coder and would require an assistance of one.

Code is just code... you can't exactly just roll it up and sell it.
rim6o Dec 20, 2013 @ 2:26pm 
I think I understand. My understanding of software development isn't limited.
cprince  [developer] Dec 22, 2013 @ 12:38pm 
I don't think it's going to make the unlock target anyway.

♥♥♥♥♥man, I can't just buy a third set of copies of your games! ;)

Droid Assault is an awesome game!

I got droid assault as part of the Humble Bundle Weekly Sale, does Puppy Games have any other games worth playing besides the ones that were in that sale?
cprince  [developer] Dec 30, 2013 @ 3:35am 
Well, all of them :D
