id Software Founders' Original Games Open Sourced
Several 1990's era videogames created by the founders of Richardson, Texas-based id Software--John Carmack, John Romero, and Adrian Carmack--have just been made available via open source, by the company that owns the rights to those games. The old, classic games--which include HOvertank3D, Catacomb, TheCatacomb, Catacomb3D, and other titles--were created by the founders of id Software at Softdisk, in Shreveport, Louisiana, before the three founded id Software. The games have all been open sourced under the Gnu Public License (GPL) by current owner Flat Rock Software.
