That’s right. The premier Linux Distro Building Simulation Game in the universe… is now available for free.
Yesterday, we hit our goal of bringing in enough donations to support full time, Open Source development of all of the software you see on Lunduke.com.
Starting today I am Open Sourcing (under the GPL) of all of my software.
Step 1: Releasing Linux Tycoon (for Linux, Windows and Mac) to the world for free.
You can grab the installers from here and start playing right now.
Full, GPL licensed, source code will also be supplied as soon as I get source control hosting and project tracking tools set up (for those who would like to be a part of that process, keep an eye on Lunduke.com later today).
On an only slightly related note: I’m not a big fan of asking for donations, pledge drives and the like. I find that stuff pretty boring. So here’s how I’ve decided to handle the whole “remind people that full time development is funded completely by contributions” thing — I’m going to write haiku’s.
Linux Tycoon free
Donations made possible
You guys rock so much
