As with any major programming project, Allacrost would not exist without the trillions of lines of code that were written by others, which the Allacrost engine sits upon. This page is a list of the programs and libraries that Allacrost developers user to do their programming, artwork, music, or whatever else, and serves as a means of thanking them. We extend an extra special thanks out to the free and open-source software used, without which the Allacrost project would have never came into existance in the first place. Paid, closed-source software is also listed for completeness, but since they were already given money for their product(s), they already have plenty of thanks. :)
