Keen Software House have surprised everyone by handing over the source code for Medieval Engineers, in its entirety, to the community!
In their press release they stated:
Continued development, and the enormous effort this would require, would need logistical support, communication channels, a custom build, distribution methods, proper bug reporting and feedback, and the list goes on. While community feedback was moving, the number of logistical challenges something like this presented seemed almost unrealistic. Thanks to the patience of our volunteers and the investment of resources from Keen Software House we have created a framework for continued, community-led, development.”Keen Software House
Keen Software House have said that they will continue to provide development resources such as servers, staff support, logistics, and communications support.
