Source Code Available

Software concept

The source code for these games have been published but likely or definitely remains proprietary.

This tag is not for games that include the source code in the same package as the game. Use Source code included for that. Also not for FOSS games (Open Source / Free Software).

The first Source Code Available video game was released in 1969.

Creative Computing, Scientific Research Inst. and Usborne Publishing published most of these games.
