The purpose of the Debian Games Team is to coordinate, share common problems and solutions and even in some cases be able to maintain games collaboratively. There is a project at Salsa and the irc channel #debian-games on created for that purpose.

The coordination of this project happens on the debian-devel-games mailing list. There are also two additional lists: pkg-games-devel (subscribe), which is used for bug reports, and pkg-games-commits (subscribe) to track changes made to the subversion and git repositories.

The main goals of the project are:

Get Involved


Non-packaging work


Debian Developers

Developer's resources

Internal pages

Game Packages

For a user-centric page about games in Debian, see Game.

Most of our game packages should be in the git repositories or in the svn repositories. There's a chance that some might not be in any yet. The list below is certainly outdated. The DFSG free games are located under games-team.


In Games/Links you can find links to web pages and blogs that can be useful in following the state of the art in Linux Games and in Free Games in general.
