Games in OpenSource

I was reading about opensource games, so, here we go...


The industry of games just has to win about it. How to win? simple , justdistributed your work, let it open,  sends support, and get money.


If you have your source code distributed other people will help to developer the job. If only you develops for 87 hours per month, you distributes your code, and you could have more 4 people helping you, multiply 87 \* 4. and you could work 10 hours per month, reviewing the project. So you economize a lot of hours....


You have the advantage too of to take some codes which help you to do your game, like libraries. You could have versatily libraries in your game, and making it running in other platforms. If this thing doesn't works, contact who did and he/she you fixs to you, be sure...


This bring more stability for your project, you don't need to worry about a lot of code, and the codes which you gets from other places ever was reviwed every step on the way. So it is trustly too.And how i said, you can explore and expand the market doing games for others platforms.


The benefits, about money, you can get? yes.


About support; addtionals libraries, upgrades about libraries, modules, or anythng else that will complete or make better the game you can put some price... Or use LGPL ( lesser general public license). You just let a part of your code being opensource. The others parts is closed. And you can sells a game less expensive.


And a good thing, people working to do peripherals to work together with your game, making your game more atractive and interesting for various platforms.


 But you can not celebrate, has somethings you must considerate.


About cheaters... They would know and sell cheats about your game, and it's a bad thing.


Another thing that can be bad is, the companies looks your code, what and how you developed tha game, engine, code and try oreven make thing like your job and after sells. it is legal. Because havy the same features and not is deriving from original work.


Have another thing to considerate like legal issues and clusters....


So you have to considerate about that, be a gamer developer opensource or not....
