TMW Development Team (see AUTHORS file for a list)


The Mana World (TMW) is a serious effort to create an innovative free and open source MMORPG. TMW uses 2D graphics and aims to create a large and diverse interactive world. The project has existed for about one and a half year now, and it is in a stage of increasingly functional walkaround demo.

One big part of this project will be the game server. We're still working with the open source Ragnarok Online server eAthena, but we have started building our own distributed server.

Truly, an experience that you have to have once in your life, is playing this game.
While the graphics are unfinished, there isn't anywhere to go yet, the NPCs say the same thing
over and over and over, and there isn't any music while playing, only at the title screen, I must say
that I found this game to be extremely addictive, and entertaining. I played for 9 hours straight yesterday...
before I knew it, I had stayed up all night and half into the next day! I won't be playing TMW again for quite some time, but only because of the amount of time that I tend to spend trapped inside this very immersive and fun environment. I give this game a 7 because it is unfinished, and I will review again once it is more complete. I am highly interested in seeing the progress of this immense project. Kudos to the devlopers!
