Topic: Charting the Interest for Open Source Development of This Game
I thought I should drop at least a line to see if there is interest for contributing in the development of the game. It would be a shame to see the game go, but the reality is that I hardly have time to even post this message at the moment.
So I just ask if You, the players, would be interested in coding the game if the current source code was opened to the public?
In short opensourcing the game would make it possible to use your talents to fix the current problems and create something new. All kinds of talents would be needed, coders, graphic artist, html/css wizards and perhaps even musicians.
I haven't had the time to reply to Postal, but so far the issue is on the table and I would be willing to do code reviews and maintain the coding infrastructure and Postal said that he would like to manage the design decisions.
So ask yourself are you willing to contribute and spread the word to those who have once played to see if there's interest.
I try to reply to any questions you may have, but as I said at this moment my time resources are quite limited.
