Perhaps the most interesting facet of this release announcement isn’t actually the game itself, but the fact that Indiefreaks is also giving away the source code and assets to anyone who purchases the game.

By sharing best practices and real examples to a wide audience, we improve the chances to see new game developers joining the party and make great games for us to play. We believe Ace on Steroids players will have a lot of fun making their games and, who knows… Maybe we’ll team up and create some other great games together. – Philippe Da Silva, Indiefreaks studio owner

Da Silva will be providing tutorial videos explaining why the source code was written in the manner it was. This is all part of his “Indiefreaks Game Framework” open source initiative that includes a strong emphasis on sharing as much information with as many creative and talented individuals as possible. Very cool. As with our recent interview with developer OneKSoftGames, it’s always fantastic to hear about individuals trying to help others break into the scene.
