    Phoronix: CoreBreach Aims To Go Open-Source

    CoreCode, the company behind the CoreBreach, has exclusively shared with Phoronix their plans to open-source this multi-platform anti-gravity racing game. The Core3D engine is also set to be opened up along with the game itself...

    > unique racing game

    uh, yeah. i assume nobody has ever seen wipeout racing games. this is as close to an exact clone as it gets. i'm worried that they are very close to being in trouble with sony because of that.

    Looks to me as F-Zero meets Mario Kart 64. Both games are from another era...

    From CoreCode:

    ....in the forum discussion resulting from your last coverage "CoreBreach On Linux Is Ready, May Go Open-Source" we've learned that there is some demand for getting the source code of CoreBreach opened up so that there can be game mods and the game can enter linux distribution package systems. we've had some time to think about this and have concluded that we would like to make this step and pledge to open source the game once enough copies to cover the costs have been sold. since we've made good experiences with your coverage of the game, the idea for this emerged on your forums, and since the source code is mainly of interest to the linux crowd, we'd like to exclusively announce this open source move (and the coinciding price cut) on phoronix, if you are interested.....
    They put it up on their website after Phoronix already published it, etc.

    While that quote may be true, the fact that they posted it up on their own website the same day doesn't mean it's exclusive for you - it makes it public

    Just a wording issue that's all.

    we've put it up there only after the phoronix article (because if you go there for more information and nothing is there, the article would be pretty pointless) and have not yet sent out word to any other website, so, yes, its exlusive.

    Classic example of 'Freudian slip':

    What is it now, exclusive or elusive?
