With only 14 days left until the Kickstarter for the upcoming horrific adventure game Asylum comes to an end, the developers behind the game; Senscape have announced that their Dagon game engine is open-source as of today.
An AMA session scheduled on Reddit for February 14th 9PM GMT, the company will take questions about the engine and any other key topics including Asylum, Scratches, Lovecraft, horror and adventure games!
The Dagon engine is available immediately in its GitHub repository along with extensive information on how to use it, and an SDK is being prepared so that fans may create and play their own storys based in the already deeply detailed game world. Open-sourcing the Dagon engine grants everyone access to a powerful tool, that the developers are using to create Asylum; a horror adventure game inspired by the chilling writing of H.P. Lovecraft, that is building on the cult hit Scratches.
If you’re a fan of being scared like a little girl, or maybe you just enjoyed Scratches, then be sure to donate some of your time and money to the Kickstarter campaign, with just $15 securing you a copy of the game when it is released, and a host of in-game and physical rewards available.
Asylum is scheduled for a release towards the end of 2013 for Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
