A Majority Seem To Agree Open-Source Games/Engines Are Trending Downhill

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 13 December 2015 at 02:04 PM EST. 17 Comments
Yesterday's article titled Are Open-Source Games and Community Game Engines Fading Away? continues to be one of the most-discussed threads in the forums this weekend.

The 70+ comments so far are widely split on the state of open-source games/engines and a wide variety of views are expressed in that thread. Check out that thread if you're interested in more on the matter of open-source games, along with some actively maintained FLOSS titles I didn't mention in yesterday's article.

Concurrent to that forum thread, I posed the same question to followers of @Phoronix on Twitter. The poll yielded 61% of the 142 votes feeling that Open-Source Games & Community Game Engines Are Fading Away.

Those Twitter details here. If you missed out on the discussion so far, jump into our forums or on Twitter or Facebook.
