The games team was the "Maintainer", in practice it looks like only
Gürkan Sengün maintained it, but he is not a Debian member.
For sponsorship you can either look outside the team or for team
sponsorship, look here:

Check the PTS and the orphaning bug:

The ones that are in a VCS should be in the team VCS, if not that
should be fixed.
IIRC Gürkan Sengün did not like version control systems, so you will
probably need to import it to SVN/git, whichever you prefer.
