Frictional Games has announced Amnesia: The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs are is now available as open source.

The code released contains all the game code for both Amnesia: The Dark Descent and A Machine For Pigs. It also contains all editor codes.

The full source code for Amnesia: The Dark Descent is available under GPL v3 today.

“Modding has been a huge part of Amnesia,” explains Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games. “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. It is time we give something back.”

While the source code will become publicly available, the games will remain available for purchase on online stores. The games and all of the content are still owned by Frictional Games, but users will now be able to use the source however they want, as long as they adhere to the licence.
