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).

game-data-packager aims to support all games of any kind: FPS, adventure games, text games, strategy games,... in all available languages.

Here is a list of all games supported by the version in git. To see which games are supported by the version currently installed on your computer, simply type game-data-packager at the shell.


This is arranged in an approximate difficulty order: items nearest the top are the easiest ones. Please feel free to open discussions about this on the debian-devel-games list.
