Open-Sourcing Canabalt was a Success

Adam Saltsman, developer of the bsd-code, closed-assets, one-button reaction game Canabalt wrote about the effects of Open-Sourcing Your Game While It's Still Popular to their game.
The results of this decision, though not what we expected, have been very positive.
Let's hope the discussion doesn't turn into a hairsplitting war about "free"/"open" and "game"/"engine". :)

By the way, I found this news via reddit.com/r/gamedev in this comment thread. If you're into reddit as well, feel free to submit and cross-post relevant open source game (dev) news on /r/opensourcegames!
