Ahh, I was getting confused - I was under the impression that maintainers were full-on Debian developers.
This makes a lot more sense!

Assuming nobody else especially wants to, I'll start on packaging it up and going through the process myself. It'll be good practice: I've a couple of other packages I'd like to get added eventually too. And Zig seems a nice uncomplicated first attempt.
I'm sure I'll be back with lots of stupid questions :-)

Cool. I'd feel bad squatting on the 'zig' package name. A programming language seems way more significant than my game.

Thanks for the feedback - very useful!
