Good news coming from King today as their Defold engine is now available on GitHub.
Mobile games company King today announced that the Defold game engine is available as an open source project. As part of the open source process King has transferred Defold to a software foundation; the Defold Foundation. The Defold Foundation has taken full ownership of the Defold product and services, including the website, build servers, user forum and social media channels. The source code is available on GitHub.
That’s going to be an interesting journey for the whole Defold team, including product owner, Björn Ritzl.

Edit (May 20th): after some discussions regarding the license of Defold, the official statement was issued explaining that instead of “open source”, it’s rather that “the source code for the free to use Defold game engine is now available with a developer-friendly license”.
