Start in the powerful city-state of Tulimshar before heading out into the vast expanses of the desert. Get powerful and explore the small continent of Argaes where magic is born. In The Mana World you are an adventurer and monster slayer defending the people of the world from the threats created during the Great Quake. Even in the icy heights of Nivalis there is a call for your assistance to keep the world safe and to grow your mana potential.
The Mage Council of Tulimshar has monitored events following the Great Quake and feel that something ominous is spreading throughout The Mana World. Monsters seem to of come out of every shadowy corner and petty dieties has begun to make presence in dark places. The council has made the call and you are just one of the many people that will battle the forces of evil, sending them back to the depths they came from.
Be it warrior, archer or mage, you have answered the call from the leaders of the world to fight back the darkness that spread after the Great Quake. Starting in the Tonori desert, you battle your way to forests surrounding Hurnscald or the icy mountains surrounding Nivalis. Monsters have nowhere to hide.

Blender is also GPL-licensed and on both the store page and website for Blender, it doesn't say anything about relicensing or double licensing. Or am I missing something?

Cryptography, possible only relicensing or double licensing. But for this need have rights in all lines of code. Or may be some thing was changed? How long ago was this message?

But Michael Larabel from says "It's a myth that Steam doesn't support GPL-licensed games. Other GPL software like Blender and Warsow and Aquaria and Gish are available via Steam."

Sadly steam policy not allow software with GPL license. Probably we will use some kind of workarounds for publish it. Because this about time not sure. Until this happend client can be installed without steam
