Amnesia: Rebirth

Recommended Posts

Is very hard to judge a game based on this small trailer but based on their track record i'm sure I will like it.

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Here's the announcement post for the source code: https://frictionalgames.com/2020-09-amnesia-is-now-open-source/

I'm curious what can be done with the code. It's useful for archival purposes of course, plus it means that it'll always be possible to find a way to run the game on ever-changing systems (especially Linux in which older proprietary games sometimes just up and die on newer distros), also maybe someone will port it to ARM or something.

I'd be surprised if the engine can be used as the basis for a new game since it's probably built specifically for Frictional's purposes rather than as general-purpose engine, but who knows.

Cool :) allready done some work on HPL1.

As far as i can glean you are free to do whatever with the code but the game assets are proprietary so much the same as with idtech.

Code could be used for a game but we would need to create new assets for it.

The HPL engine itself is just a framework much like irrlicht engine so custom game code is doable.
