Some more games for the Debian games team to package
So after seeing: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Debian-Games-2018
I realized that there are probably a few games in Fedora which are
not in Debian yet.
So following the gotta catch them all principle I
thought I would share a list of those I'm aware of
Notice these are all games using allegro, about 10
years ago when I still had a lot of spare time to
do game packaging work I focused on getting permission
to release games under an open license from the authors
of various games listed at allegro.cc.
First of all here a coupe which I think are quite
good quality / very playable and really should be added
to Debian when someone finds some time:
Somewhat of a mixed bag:
And here are some with quite low res graphics and
thus not really up to todays standards IMHO
With the exception of magicmaze (see the footnote)
I believe these are all DSFG free.
You can give these a quick test-spin by
installing Fedora 28 in a vm, then they are
just a "dnf install foo" away.
1) These come from:
Which probably has other candidates as well
2) This is not the magicmaze which is already in Debian,
so it needs a new name. Also the music "Advancement.xm"
has a license which does not allow modification, which
means it is non free, so this needs to be replaced
