    How much of this game is done? Percentage wise.

    Just curious.

    This might be bad news for most of you but I don't think I will ever finish Rainy Day... :(

    I've just been busy with so many other things. I mainly do HTML5 and Unity3D stuff now...

    Here's a link to a ZIP file containing the source code and all resources of the game, feel free to do your own thing with it :)

    Hardly surprising since there was no news on the project for a while.

    Good thing is, the Source is there so nothing is lost. :) Would be much worse if it was closed source. ^^

    Not really surprising indeed, but nevertheless you are honestly and say, that the project is dead and it is open to everyone to complete since the code is released.

    There´s more open source stuff out there than people to care about it. Look at the number of zero followers projects on github.

    tbh this project stands out because of the art side. i dont think there's much magic in the code as of yet that couldn't be rewritten (not meant as a sidekick, didnt look at the code yet :))

    but still, i'm also a bit sad that this project is dead. i was always waiting to play it cause i really love platformer games. and whenever there is some time, i'm going to write my own. or so ;)

    I almost regret giving D_S a nudge... :( But seems he and Archi are just too busy these days, a bit like myself.

    I would say I'd pick this up since it is based on Penjin - but I wouldn't be able to do the art and I really don't have the time. Sad days indeed.

    There is indeed nothing special about the code :) Actually I would recommend anyone that wants to continue this project to rewrite it! I started programming this when I was still at school, I've learned so much since then and half of the code is old and could really use some optimising!
