Open-Source iOS game “Edgar The Explorer”.
Images under CC-BY license, source under LGPL licence. Sounds: mixed license (see COPYING).
We started this project during summer 2014.
On June 4, 2016, Apple authorized the external testing using TestFlight. We got a lot of great feedback and this enabled us to improve the game a lot.
First release on August 17, 2016 on the App Store. We were very bad at marketing the game (no advertising / blog posts / press news), but a good ranking helped us to get about 1000 downloads within two months (see our download statistics).
Unexpected download peak two years later (3000 installs in a few weeks).
February 2019: a Swiss music producer started creating sounds and a new music -- work in progress.
Three great, much more advanced FOSS iPhone games we love:
2048 (MIT) https://github.com/gabrielecirulli/2048
Dungeon Story (MIT) https://github.com/pdeligia/dungeonstory-ios
Puzzles (MIT) https://github.com/ghewgill/puzzles
We are looking for other free/libre iOS games or game makers. Any help is appreciated.
