What? Is NEO Scavenger NEO Scavenger Open Source Now?
However, I did use several open source tools to make it, as have several other developers. We thought it would be cool to try and give back to the open source communities that helped us by making a Humble Bundle that donates back to those tools!
So what are the open source tools? The open-source programming language Haxe is strongly represented: three of the charities include the Haxe Foundation itself, OpenFL (recently featured on /r/gamedev), and FlashDevelop, the most popular open-source Haxe/ActionScript IDE. The fourth is Ren'Py, the Phython-based visual novel engine used in award-winning games like Long Live the Queen and Analogue: A Hate Story.
In particular, NEO Scavenger was developed using the FlashDevelop IDE, along with Haxe and OpenFL for creating editing tools. And what's more, I am fairly certain future games by Blue Bottle Games will be built on these technologies. So this is not only a way to say "thanks," but also an investment in our future!
What Are the Games?
