    Aren't most game engines open source nowadays? As for the game logic itself, it's usually content related scripts anyhow...

    What makes the Overgrowth OSS release good is that it's a procedural engine with great physics that has fighter game level twitch response combat mechanics and a fantastic world editor.
    Hopefully now it will be picked up by some indie dev for a soulslike and get the respect it deserves.

    It's like the DOOM games, where the engine is open-source, but the WAD file containing the textures, levels, etc. is still paid-for.

    If you want to create something that's "The Dark Mod, now a standalone game" to Overgrowth's Doom 3, you're free to.

    Quickly looking over the code there doesn't seem to be any benchmark support / timedemo / automation support currently... The benchmark references are just from the Bullet physics library.
