Manasource is an organisation with members from several game projects that have spawned throughout the history of the organisation.

The Mana World started as an open source 2D MMORPG in 2004 and was from the beginning constantly-evolving. Over time forks emerged of the original game and its client, as well as different server software and even plans for new titles inspired by the original game. Manasource is a collaboration between these related projects, managing shared resources like hosting, software and game content.

Our software is free and open source and we endorse the principles of free software as defined by the Free Software Foundation.
