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.
