Various games are divided into two logical parts: engine and data. Often the engine and data are licenced in different ways, such that only one half can be distributed in Debian.

game-data-packager is a tool which builds .deb files for game data which cannot be distributed in Debian (such as commercial game data).

At the moment, game-data-packager has support for building debs for various games from the Doom, Quake, Heretic & Wolfenstein franchises and others like Rise of the Triad or Tyrian.
