  • tgstation

    The /tg/station branch of SS13

    tgstation, an open-source repository for one of the most popular variants of the game "Space Station 13" was in the top ten "Most Discussed Repositories" in 2017.

  • goonstation

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Cataclysm-DDA

    Cataclysm - Dark Days Ahead. A turn-based survival game set in a post-apocalyptic world.

    There's also games like Cataclysm DDA or Tales of Maj'Eyal that operate similarly and are pretty dang active.

  • zengm

    Basketball GM, Football GM, and ZenGM Hockey are single-player sports management simulation games, made entirely in client-side JavaScript.

    Basketball GM is sorta open-source and has been for quite sometime. I think one of the challenges for that project is getting people to meaningfully contribute. As not only is this a fairly niche genre for a game, but the codebase is somewhat complex too.

  • veloren

    An open world, open source voxel RPG inspired by Dwarf Fortress and Cube World. This repository is a mirror. Please submit all PRs and issues on our GitLab page.

    Veloren is a free 3D RPG inspired by Cube World and made in Rust.

  • Mindustry

    The automation tower defense RTS

    Mindustry is a paid game on Steam but is open-source with a passionate lead dev.

  • Barotrauma

    A 2D online multiplayer game taking place in a submarine travelling through the icy depths of Jupiter's moon Europa.

    Barotrauma is a paid game that is partially open-source with the devs taking pull requests and bug reports from their community.
