Using GNU in project

Okay so recently I had a problem in figuring out how to do something. Recently I found the GNU utility called wget could do what I was looking for. It is licensed under gnu general public license 3. If I include a copy of wget within my game files to be ran by my game without modifying source would that be a covered work while the exterior program is free to be licensed in any way, or would the whole thing be a modified work or something else.

I'm not a lawyer, but simply bundling wget as-is with your game, while the two are otherwise separated, doesn't trigger the GPL. You just need to include the proper copyright and license note along with the utility.

Thank you, I thought that might be the case but I was not sure.
