Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Developer Frictional Games has officially announced that Amnesia: The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs are is now available as open source, and is available under GPL v3 today.

In an official announcement the developers said: “Modding has been a huge part of Amnesia. For instance, over the years The Dark Descent has accumulated over a thousand mods and addons on ModDB. This flood of user content has been amazing to see and we are extremely grateful for the whole community surrounding it all.

It is time we gave something back!”

The code release contains all the game code for both The Dark Descent and A Machine For Pigs. It also contains all editor code, but it does not mean that the game is suddenly free, as the developer notes.

  • Automatic render batch system of static objects.
  • Deferred shading system.
  • A full editor with lots of interesting feature that such as picking algorithms and view fitting.
  • Very simple state machine AI that still gives rise to fairly interesting and intelligent agents.
  • Fairly advanced system for physics sounds.
  • Physics based interaction system.
  • Own sound system implemented using OpenAL
  • Lots of other basic rendering and gameplay tech all implemented in an a coherent engine structure
