It is probably quite simple because you can just download the existing
Debian package of trigger-rally and use it as a starting point. Since
you are upstream you can quickly answer the questions:

Are any new dependencies required to build the game? Then update

Did you add new files with different licenses? Then document them in

Now update debian/changelog and try to build the new version. Afterwards
run a Debian tool called Lintian on the resulting *.changes file and fix
all remaining issues. :)

If you are into Git and you like that workflow take a look at
git-buildpackage. Otherwise just use debuild or dpkg-buildpackage.
