Better yet for all you aspiring game developers out there, they are also posting source code for Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD and Penumbra. Your donation (one penny on up) can be apportioned how you like among the developers themselves, the EFF, and Child's Play. The offer looks like it will run through Saturday, though it's been extended once already due to its popularity.
