After the huge success of the Humble Indie Bundle, and the raise of over 1 Million Dollars in donations – the games in this “project” are “freeing their sources”.
After Lugaru and Penumbra Overture freed their sources, Gish is now following their example.
The source is under GPL and can be downloaded from here.

As always Wolfire Games write about this on their blog :

Gish goes open-source
By John on May 30th, 2010
As promised in the Humble Indie Bundle, the classic indie game starring your favorite 12-pound ball of tar, has now had its secret sauce released under the GNU General Public License. Ever wonder how Gish’s famously fluid physics system was put together? Well now you can take a look for yourself. Alex Austin has just made the source code available for download here.

Gish Trailer: Watch on YouTube

This is really exciting. Who knows what crazy mods may emerge? The first project that pops into my head is making Gish a 13-pound ball of tar but I have a feeling Gish fans will be way more creative than that. What are you waiting for? Go check out the source!

The Humble Indie Bundle ! Pay What You Want !

Wolfiregames the developers of the Lugaru that are currently working on Overgrowth have posted about The Humble Indie Bundle – Pay What You Want Program !
Five games in the price that you decide !

All games support GNU/Linux and there is even a real time statistics about each platform contribution !
So don’t be shy to contribute more then the minimum, think about the indies and the charities !
Prove once again that GNU/Linux Users Pay and Buy More !

If you bought those games already, you can give them to your friends and family as a gift !

Please be aware that The Humble Indie Bundle will only last for 7 days, so don’t wait for too long !

Frictional Games reports that everybody that gets the bundle are also able to buy the remaining Penumbra games (Black Plague and Requiem) with a 75% discount (for only $5 that is)!

Basically we’re taking 5 classic indie games: World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture and bundling them in a pay-what-you-want sale. Please remember though, we’re just humble indie developers and the more you contribute, the easier it will be for us to make awesome games in the future.

Cross-Platform: PC, Mac and Linux
You’ve heard us mention how important it is to support Mac and Linux in addition to Windows, and for this promotion we didn’t want to leave anyone out (we owe special thanks to the amazing Ryan Gordon for helping make this possible).

No DRM
We already echoed the philosophy which should be common knowledge among mainstream developers about why DRM doesn’t make sense. As our thanks for your participation in this humble bundle, your user-experience will not be inhibited by any DRM.

No Corporate Middle Man
Please know that there is no distributor acting as a middle man for this promotion and taking a cut of the proceeds. Your contributions will go directly to support the developers and charities (minus payment processor fees).

Buying The Bundle Helps Charity
By default two charities, Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation share an equal part of the bundle proceeds with the five games. However, you can also customize how your donation will be split in step 3.

So Please Help Us Spread The Word!
We are really excited to see how this turns out. We don’t have a marketing budget so please tell your friends about the bundle. Tweets and Facebook shares are greatly appreciated.

We also want to thank the other indie developers for being bold enough to partake in this exciting experiment with us. Aright, enough reading, GO VISIT THE SITE!
