Check out Superpowers, CraftStudio's open source HTML5 successor: https://sparklinlabs.itch.io/superpowers

Yeah, I like Superpowers. I like what it does. I like its professionalism. I like how it's free as in freedom, and not just being leased to you. But I bet you didn't make a whole new game maker just to redirect your customers to Superpowers, eh?

It's good for business, this whole free software thing. All my work is in the public domain; all I know is that everyone can enjoy my work after I die, and not have to ask my greedy heirs for permission to view the art I made. I bet you could do something similar. I made half a million words in my life. I wonder what this program will do?

CraftStudio is 3 or 4 years *older* than Superpowers. I've just made my legacy program free and all you can find is cynical ways to interpret it, it seems.

Anyway, thanks for your feedback. CraftStudio was not designed as an open source platform, it has centralised dependencies. Open sourcing it would be a good bit of work that I'm not willing to put in at this time. Maybe someday.

I just want what’s best for you, dear.

Sparklin, the fruits of your intellectual labor should be utilized in the fashion you desire. All hold a natural right to thrive from the gains of personal endeavor in a marketplace of opportunity. Peace out and prosper wildly.

I don't know why you're getting so much flack for this. I used Superpowers for a while and totally plan on coming back to it when I'm good enough with Typescript to expand it where I need it to go. That you released your older software for free at the end of its life seems like a pretty awesome thing to do, so thanks!
