Free Games

Here are some excellent games, which are Free Software. Most are released under the GNU GPL.

It might not seem that it is necessary for the games that we play to be Free Software. To some extent I agree that games are in a slightly different category. They are not entirely functional, they contain some elements that make them similar to novels or movies. However the portion that is software (the engine) should be free software, for the same reason that other functional software should be.

A practical example of the benefits of free software at work in the world of games is the large number of free software games that encourage the user to make their own levels, contribute their own artwork, etc. This allows even non-programmers to enjoy the feeling of modifying software to suit their needs.
