Yo Frankie! is a free open source 3D cross platform computer game which has been developed by the community, off the community, for the community. Or something. The gameplay is somewhat simplistic, but hey, it’s free and a solid effort which may point to a new business model for the beleaguered video game industry. Perhaps. It’s available on Linux, Mac and Windows via a hefty 200MB download, so hurry on over and check it out.
Starting february 1st 2008, a small team of again the best 3D artist and developers will develop a game jointly with the on-line community. The main characters in the game are based on the short 3D animation open movie Peach. At the end of July 2008 the production ends and August is used for DVD and documentation making. Releasing the game at end of August. The team members will get a great studio facility and housing in Amsterdam, all travel costs reimbursed, and a fee sufficient to cover all expenses during the period.
