Unknown Worlds Entertainment, the indie studio behind the well-received Natural Selection 2 (AusGamers 9/10), continues to build their indie cred, having released their in-house development environment Decoda to open source.

Decoda is an Integrated Development Environment custom-built by Unknown Worlds around the Lua scripting language that drives the game, and by releasing the source code of these tools, they're inviting the community to "download it, change it, modify it, improve it, and use it to create whatever they want"
Decoda has been licensed by large, well known publishers and income from this licensing was very important in funding Unknown Worlds throughout the development of NS2. After the sales success of NS2, we have the opportunity to reassess our business model and give something back to the gaming and development community. We’re giving back Decoda.
The announcement further explains that the Decoda environment can be used to modify NS2 itself, or create their own games on NS2's Spark Engine, or another engine entirely, and they hope that feedback and contributions and experimentation from the community will result in collaborative improvements to Decoda itself.

You can download the Decoda source and a Windows installer over at unknownworlds.com.

Natural Selection 2 itself can be found on Steam for US$24.99.





Buy now from Green Man Gaming for only GBP£18.99 (USD$24.99 on Steam)!
