Hi, I'm just some anon who loves Debian and games and just found out about this game authoring tool that has been recently opensourced.

It would be cool if someone could make a package for this (their compiling instructions is not the simple configure;make;checkinstall I'm used to).

Thanks for all your efforts in bringing game to the linux crowd!

Open source Game Editor for Linux and Windows

Game Editor is a graphical game development environment.

Game Editor[1] provides a graphical game development environment for Windows (95 to Vista), Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.5 and Linux. The software is distributed under a dual licensing model - the source code[2] is available under version 3 of the GNU General Public License[3] (GPLv3), but can - after being compiled by the user - only be used to develop open source games. Users wanting a pre-compiled binary or wishing to use Game Editor to create games to be distributed under licenses other than GPLv3 must purchase[4] the commercial version for $95, which includes one year of free updates and technical support. No license fees are payable for games developed using the Brazilian software.

The Game Editor graphical development environment[5] can be used to create simple game characters and environments, graphics, sounds and animations. Development is event-driven. The screenshots[6] convey a good impression of how the software works and a short video[7] is also available on YouTube.
