Having dead projects in Debian isn't really a good idea, please fork
the upstream code. I saw the comment at the bottom of this page, you
might want to contact that guy to get him to help out:
Please put it on one of the public project hosting sites
(gna/savannah/sf/launchpad) so it can be more easily hijacked if you
abandon it in the future. Please also use a DVCS like git so that it
is easier for external people to backup the version control history.
Also, you might want to join the Debian Games Team if you haven't
already and maintain the packaging there.
