Open Source Game Clones

This site tries to gather open-source reimplementations of great old games in one place. If you think that something is missing from the list - please go to our Github repository and create an issue or even a pull request!

Since all these projects are open-source you can help them and make this world a better place. Or at least you can play something to appreciate the effort people put in them.

Similar resources: check out Liberated Games, which specializes on commercial games, which were made free, and Free Gamer, a blog dedicated to open source game news.

All games that were added in last month are highlighted like this.
