THIS TEAM IS NOT ACTIVE ANYMORE

There is currently no active MOTU Games team anymore. All of the former members now contribute directly in the Debian Games Team. Please see the following Page for more information:

http://wiki.debian.org/Games/Development

There are still many many wiki pages describing Games. Please help us to merge them in the debian wiki. If you have merged a page there please delete it from the ubuntu wiki.

If you would like to help with anything game related but it is Ubuntu specific, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Games could be a good starting place to help out.

Notes

  • Users like games. It may be a considerably good idea to try setting up a real games team and moving some games into Main. -- JohnMoser

  • Installing Armagetron, Quake 2, GLtron, Frozen Bubble, and Battle for Wesnoth shows a few packages not in main. These packages have to be considered when considering games even in Universe, as if they break MOTU has to fix them. These are mostly libsdl1.2; perhaps SDL should be considered for Main, because it's a cross-platform graphics, sound, and network library, like Microsoft DirectX but not Windows only. Packages are as follows:
    • libsdl-console
    • libsdl-gfx1.2-4
    • libsdl-net1.2
    • libsdl-perl
    • libsdl-sound1.2
    • libsvga
