Bug#773909: ITP: openjk -- engine for Jedi Academy / Jedi Outcast action games

  Upstream Author : Raven Software / JACoders

  Description     : engine for Jedi Academy / Jedi Outcast action games

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
are first- and third-person action games set in the Star Wars universe,
developed by Raven Software and released in 2002 and 2003 respectively.

This package contains game engines suitable to play these games on Debian,
based on the 2013 GPL source release and modified to work on modern Linux
systems. It requires non-distributable game data files prepared using
the game-data-packager tool.


There are separate engine builds for Jedi Outcast single-player (experimental),
Jedi Academy single-player and Jedi Academy multiplayer, which will probably
be separate binary packages.

This will need to go in contrib/games due to its dependence on non-free assets.
As with Return to Castle Wolfenstein it might be necessary to resort to
"please install using Wine and copy *.pk3 from there".

I intend to maintain this game in the Games Team (X-Debbugs-cc'd).
Co-maintainers are very welcome.

Merry Christmas,
