The source code for The Simpsons Hit & Run has supposedly leaked online

Gaming leaks and decades-old development files continue to make their way online, appearing suddenly in the form of anonfiles.com uploads. While it's no Nintendo Gigaleak, the latest upload will likely catch the attention of many, as it's the source code for The Simpsons Hit & Run, a well-loved licensed game that fans have been demanding a remake of for years. Posted to 4chan, the folder supposedly contains documents pertaining to the game's development cycle and marketing from Radical Entertainment, alongside the full source code. According to posts, users have been able to successfully compile the source into a playable copy of the game, running on a Windows XP virtual machine.

The leak could possibly lead to fan-made ports to more modern platforms or detailed mods being made for the game. An extensive modpack for the PC version of The Simpsons Hit & Run called Donut Mod has existed for years, while just last week, another fan created an Unreal Engine remake of the first level from the game, complete with Ray Tracing and AI-upscaled graphics.

I actually just beat it for the first time about a month ago. It's not terrible but it is pretty repetitive.

I loved this game I won a copy in college when Radical Entertainment did a Simpsons trival contest amongst all the CompSci students in the game dev electives.

1st prize was a guaranteed 1 of 3 internship spots, I came in 2nd and surprisingly and unfortunately wasn't chosen as one of the other interns,
instead won a copy of this and a t-shirt.
I got picked up for indentured servitude (practicum/internship)with Ubi but that was just luck of the draw but I digress.

When I last saw that video I remember one of the lead or senior developers commented on the video saying he was impressed with his work and that it shows how a remaster would be. I wonder if he was the one who leaked the code lol. ;O;
