Freaks! is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Freaks! is a game created by the Spanish developer Triptico first released in 1993 for MS DOS, lead by Ángel Ortega and released under the banner of Lovecraft Dreams. Although inspired by Wolfenstein 3D and its raycasting engine, it is functionally more similar to the Catacomb 3D games, featuring dark fantasy themes and a magician as a protagonist. The original DOS version only allows turns of ninety degrees, somewhat similar to grid-based dungeon crawler games such as Dungeon Master. A re-write was released in 2002 using their own QDGDF library and added in free turns, new environmental effects, and support for Windows and Linux, although bugs remain. They also released the first-person puzzle game Space Plumber in 1997 published by StRAtOS. The source code for both is available, with both stated to be in the public domain.
