FOSsil Bank Update (4 August 2012)

Posted on 4 August 2012


Hi folks,

I’ve decided that the weekly schedule for these updates was a bit ambitious: I don’t always find that much content. But here’s the last few weeks of stuff.

As always, let me know of any libre resources that are out there—or add them to the FOSsil Bank yourselves!


When I find a libre licensed work up on Kickstarter, IndieGoGo or another crowdfunding tool, I’ll tweet about it with the tag #FundFreeCulture. Feel free to do the same!

  • Ronaldo Tours is a documentary about a fictional Italian. The compilation will be CC BY-NC-SA, but the assets will be CC BY. ($265 of $500, 41 days to go)

  • Lunatics Animated Series Pilot is an animated science fiction TV episode. ($1,744 of $100,000, 17 days to go)

Libre Resources

  • Libre Projects is a very attractive website that sorts libre projects by type. Various licences.

  • Reformatted versions of Swords & Wizardry and the WaRP System are available. OGL. 

  • Long-time advocate for shareable resources, David Wiley, is beginning a course called Ed Startup 101 introducing educators to entrepreneurship. CC BY.

  • Adobe has released a font, Source Sans Pro, under the SIL Open Font License.

Liberated Pixel Cup Entries

Last month, the Liberated Pixel Cup resulted in dozens of pieces of pixel art being released under libre licences. This month, almost fifty open source games have been released as part of the second phase of the project. I’ve only played a few of the HTML5 games, but some are rather good!

I’m planning to post a few reviews on the Living Libre blog.

Proprietary Shareable Resources

Yaruki Zero Games has published two supplements for the game Cards against Humanity, also under CC BY-NC-SA.
