jasonrohrer Administrator. One Hour One Life, like all of my work over the past fifteen years, is placed in the public domain. At the same time, it is available commercially for $20, because access to my game servers isn’t free. The content and code are on a public GitHub (https://github.com/jasonrohrer/), but beyond running your own private server, that content won’t help you play the official game. Piracy simply isn’t an issue for a server-based game. And, despite the fact that it’s in the public domain, the official version of One Hour One life has been commercially successful.
