That sounds a bit like non-free software, if it will ever be available.
The games I have been talking about are both free (GPL) and most probably
not as violent as quake, something you can give your kids to play. Ok,
throwing bombs is maybe a little violent, but I consider them much more
suitable for younger people than quake... YMMV
Anybody out there? It should really be easy to package, I could make a deb
of gemdropx available, without sound, you will then find out how addcitive
this is, maybe even more than moon-buggy ;-)
