The overwhelming response to this release has had much fanfare, and currently Forest of Illusion has been knocked offline due to interest despite protection from their CDN, Cloudflare. According to Forest of Illusion, this release is not connected to the original authors. Additionally, the source code is meant for educational and preservation purposes only, meaning it should not be built and provided as an executable in your own projects.

Forest of Illusion is perhaps best known for their full release of the source code for Outlaw Golf, but is host to dozens of prototype releases for Nintendo consoles such as Mario's Time Machine, Jurassic Park, and Lego Harry Potter.
