Our commitment to open-source

Everyone who works at Rivet has shipped a multiplayer game. We've all experienced how much time & money is required to ship a game, and how much harder it is to maintain it.

We refused to use closed-source solutions that locked us in and failed to grow alongside our use cases, so we always opted to build solutions ourselves. To build the tool we needed, we knew it had to make it radically open-source.

The future of game development is open-source and we're here to lead the way.
