I am looking to buy the source code of some pc games. I am looking for action games (from shooters, to mario bross style games, no puzzles).
I am not looking for coders to develop me something new, I am looking for people who programmed games in the past and wouldn't mind selling me the source (and the rights to that source).
The platform must be at least windows (98, xp,...), but cross platformers (mac and linux) are more then welcome.
I don't really care what programming language and API is being used at this point (but C++ or [url removed, login to view] are preferred, use of openGL or directx). Macromedia Director games are also welcome.
My budget isn't very high, but let me hear your prices so I get an idea of what's available. Please provide a demo, so I know what quality and type we are talking about.
