About the Code
You may use the code any way you like, so long as you make the source available under the GNU General Public License version 2 or the GNU Lesser General Public
License version 3; the complete text of both licenses is in the file titled
The code was written in spurts over a long period of time and should be looked at as more of a creative work than an engineering project. Please don't ask me about it, and especially don't ask Ambrosia.
Please use "OpenAres" or some other alternative instead of just "Ares" in the title of any derivative works. If I decide to create a new game based on Ares, I'd rather not have it confused with derivatives of my prior work. Therefore I wish to strongly discourage the release of additional games called "Ares" which may be interpreted as my own.
For example, it would make me unhappy to have someone else release something called "Ares 2."
