We would like to have our games in Debian
I am Pablo Navarro, PiX Juegos director and programmer.
PiX Juegos is an open-source game development group which create free 2D games for Windows, Linux, Android, open source handhelds and some homebrew-enabled consoles.
Our games are really portable because they work on BennuGD, which is a Fénix fork.
I'm sending this e-mail to this group because we would like to have all of them put in Debian as we would like them to be more popular through the open-source scene (we do this just for ego, we admit that!) :)
Our bigger projects are those:
- PiX Frogger 2: (old version is already on repositories) PiX Frogger code rewrite up to 32 players by using up to 8 Buzz controllers and a more challenging IA (The original was really lame). Also there is touch support, and is ported to Android. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frXnk8pchuc
Some other, but fun too, are:
- Eterno Retorno 3: Almost endless hack'n slash RPG. (No video yet)
- Nerea's Bank Panic: Bank Panic remake (which was created for my girlfriends' birthday!)
All of them are ported to Android, but we have only published a few because the lack of gamepad in most devices:
I've worked before with Miriam Ruiz. She helped me to "debianize" PiX Frogger and PiX Bros about 5 years ago, but I couldn't get to contact her again through e-mail or Twitter.
All of our our games run on BennuGD, so it would also be required to be in Debian, which is under GPL3/LGPL, and it still has no x64 support and it won't surely have it in some time.
Thanks for reading, we will be awaiting your response!
