Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast Code Released

It is really sad to see Lucas Arts close. So many of my first game experiences were titles from that studio. The X-Wing and Tie Fighter games as well as the original Dark Forces will stick with me forever. I wish everyone on the Lucas Arts and ILM teams the best of luck in finding great places to use their talents.

I was also very happy to hear that Raven had decided to release the source code for Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. I haven’t taken a look yet but since I did a break down of some id tech based games a long time ago I thought I would at least run a line of code check on the source.

Lines of Code

Jedi Academy: 815785

Jedi Outcast: 762082

Someday I might come back and finish a graph comparison but these games are about 2-3 times the size of Quake 3! So if this sample point is representative games from the 90’s to early 2000’s grew substantially.
