I Wanna Be the Guy creator Kayin has released the source code for his infamously difficult action-platformer, in hopes of inspiring the creation of "a community backed, improved version."

While the game has earned a cult following among hardcore players/sadists, Kayin admits that I Wanna Be the Guy includes a number of bugs and glitches that will never be fixed in an official release. Kayin also warns that some game features will not work properly in the current version of Multimedia Fusion 2, which might make further development difficult.

Fans are free to release variants and reuse code at will, though no new content may be added to the game's current structure. I'd like to add an additional stipulation: even if a new version is released, please stop Let's Playing I Wanna Be the Guy.
