The Mana World (TMW) is a serious effort to create an innovative free and open source MMORPG. It uses 2D graphics and aims to create a large and diverse interactive world. The game aims to be a unique place for people to interact not only by fighting each other but to play life, form a community within the community, or just simply chat. Although the game is never-ending and a linear story cannot be applied, it should have enough background to describe and predefine tribes, kingdoms, and the environment overall. Fullfilled quests should lead to certain events depending on them being solved. Quests should also encourage teamwork.
