Is there any free (as free beer) assets from demo for example?

I don't think so. Game has been very cheap on sales though.

Yes, yes....I think that I bought this game some years ago in a Humble Bundle...and it must be in someplace or backup.

Can anyone give a tl;dr for the "GNU Affero General Public License"?

Wiki explains it best:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affero_Ge ... ic_License

"Both versions of the Affero GPL were designed to close a perceived application service provider (ASP) loophole in the ordinary GPL, where, by using but not distributing the software, the copyleft provisions are not triggered. Each version differs from the version of the GNU GPL on which it is based in having an added provision addressing use of software over a computer network. This provision requires that the full source code be made available to any network user of the AGPL-licensed work, typically a web application."

Thanks. So basically, it gets round the loophole of people using the software as a server, wherein they're not actually distributing it.
