Electronic Arts releases SimCity under GPL

A blogentry of the developer who ported the game to Unix confirms that game publisher Electronic Arts will release the source code of the classic “Sim City” as GPL’ed software.

Electronic Arts plans to donate the original version of the popular SimCity computer game to the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project for inclusion on the XO laptop, reports another blog.

I loved SimCity and had been playing it for days and days when I was younger. I wonder how it would feel to play the original again now.
