  Well, perhaps this list can serve. IMHO, you could have also asked in
  debian-project list or in debian-mentors.

  You could fill a bug in WNPP system with a RFP (request for packaging)
  of your game. This list is checked by Debian developers and people who
  wants to join Debian to look for new packages which they would like to
  mantain. (look at http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp)

  The other thing you can do is ask one of your friends who use Debian
  to make a package of your game. He must find a sponsor who uploads the 
  package to the archive. There are a lot of people contributing to
  Debian in this way.
