The buzz continues to grow for open source gaming efforts. A Los Angeles-based project called Ouya is billed as "a new kind of video game console" and has generated significant crowdsourced funding. And, gamers on Linux are finding a rapidly widening array of available games. But the fact remains that in the open source arena, gaming is lagging what's available on proprietary platforms.
With that in mind, GarageGames has just pledged to open source its advanced Torque 3D engine to the world on GitHub in the next several weeks, under an MIT license. That could be good news for developers who want to build around a sophisticated 3D platform.
