Daring Escape Jumper Canabalt Goes Open Source For A Good Cause

If you've ever wanted to dig into the guts of Flash game and iPhone hit Canabalt, its creators are giving you that chance, making the indie game open source as part of a charity celebration.

Canabalt—and Eliss and Drop 7 and Solipskier and Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor and Osmos—were just responsible for a $25,000 donation to Penny Arcade's Child's Play charity, the spoils of a recent iPhone indie sale. The creators of Canabalt are marking the occasion by giving away the code to their game for free, perhaps making it easier for you to create your own one-button platformer.

Maybe you can even craft your own two-player Canabalt port...
