Last month we reported on four indie games going open-source that were part of the pay-what-you-want "Humble Indie Bundle" after the developers experienced very favorable returns. The source-code to Aquaria has now been published with the source-code to the three other titles (Lugaru, Gish, and Penumbra Overture) already being available.

Like the other three titles, the open-source Aquaria code contains just the game engine and not the game's data/artwork, so you will still be stuck needing to purchase the game if you're interested. Aquaria is a game that Ryan Gordon had ported to Mac OS X and Linux last year.

The source-code to the Aquaria game can be found at Icculus.org. All the details about the open-source Aquaria can be found on the Wolfire blog.

Aquaria is described as "an underwater fantasy world to explore" with "magic and combat at a mouse click" where one can also create their own worlds with a level editor, which has also been opened up.
