Now this is a pretty awesome move; the folks at insurgentgames.com found fame and riches elusive after getting five games out the door, so rather than being all bitter about it like most of us:
… Since they’re not working on the games anymore, they decided to release them to the community. They hope their games will thrive and be reborn as bigger and better things. All of their games are licensed under the GNU General Public License.
