AMD OpenCL Powder toy

Hi all, I'm going to cut right to the chase.

 

Quite a few years ago, AMD modified a game called "The Powder Toy", to use OpenCL to accelerate the simulation, as seen here

AMD never released the software shown in the video, and I was wondering if there was a reason behind it, or if they could possibly release the modified version of the game.

 

The game itself is open source and released under the GPLv3 license, so there shouldnt be any legal issues behind it unless it was done under some contract.

 

 

Thoughts AMD?
