Additions to Debian's games since the release of etch include
Sauerbraten 20080620, a fast-paced first-person shooter, hex-a-hop
20070315, a puzzle game, fretsonfire 1.2.512, a Guitar Hero clone,
UltraStar-ng (called Performous since 0.3.0) 0.2.1, a SingStar clone
and teeworlds 0.4.2, a mixture of quake and Super Mario.
Most notable is goplay, a graphical games browser by Miriam Ruiz
offering filters, search, screenshots, descriptions, and Enrico
Zini's Debtags.

Please note that the selection of games is obviousy biased (we are
talking games, after all). Also, I am not sure if name-dropping is OK or
not. Remove Miry's and Enrico's names in case it's not.
If there are concerns about using the trademarks of closed-source
apps, Super Mario can be replaced with Supertux. Not much we can do
about Guitar Hero and SingStar, though.

Any thoughts from the others?
