Open Source Game Clones
This is the source of http://osgameclones.com. Feel free to add new games or improve information about those already in the database by submitting a pull request or opening an issue.
All of the games and their references to the original games are stored in YAML files under
originals. All information is inside, and you should
more or less understand what's going on by reading it. Sorting is alphabetical, with the
exception of ScummVM, just because it's so many games at once.
Add a clone / remake of a game
Simplest way to contribute is to fill in the template presented when you create
a new issue. Even better if you edit the files in the
games directory directly. Your
changes will be submitted as a pull request. All games are validated against the rules
schema/games.yaml validation file.

Add a reference to the original game
All the games listed need an original game they re-implement or clone. If there is no
existing game entry in
originals directory you can create a new entry
for it by following the following format. All originals are validated against the rules
schema/originals.yaml validation file.
- name: string # Name of the original game (required) names: array # Other names for the game, or other games in the series platform: enum # Game platform, i.e. Amiga. See platform in orginals schema meta: genre: enum # Any of genres in originals schema subgenre: enum # Any of subgenres in originals schema theme: enum # Any of themes in originals schema
External links to article about an original game
A Wikipedia link is created for all original game names; if the article link is different, use the following syntax:
name: [Name, Name of Wikipedia article]
If the game has a non-Wikipedia link:
name: [Name, 'http://www.example.com']
