Glitch Art and Code Released into Public Domain
This morning, I caught a retweet from Jason Scott (@textfiles) regarding an amazing opportunity for developers. Tiny Speck, Inc. has relinquished it’s copyright of over 10,000+ assets, including art and code, for Glitch. You may recall that Glitch was a collaborative, web-based, massively multiplayer game that originally opened in 2010, and was shut down last year. It was widely hailed for its original and creative visual style.
Good morning, world. Glitch has released all their assets and code as public domain. http://t.co/Muj90oAdPj – this is unicorn rare.

From the Twitch webpage:
The entire library of art assets from the game, has been made freely available, dedicated to the public domain. Code from the game client is included to help developers work with the assets. All of it can be downloaded and used by anyone, for any purpose. (But: use it for good.)
Tiny Speck, Inc., the game’s developer, has relinquished its ownership of copyright over these 10,000+ assets in the hopes that they help others in their creative endeavours and build on Glitch’s legacy of simple fun, creativity and an appreciation for the preposterous. Go and make beautiful things.
