The talk is for people interested in Free Software Games who want to learn more about the current state of games and related developer tools in Debian. I will present a short history how the games section developed over time and how it presents itself nowadays and what might happen in the future. I will talk about the Debian Games Blend and how everybody can help to promote and improve games with or without programming skills. While the talk is mainly focused on FOSS games I will also present tools like game-data-packager and how software distribution platforms like Steam have influenced gaming on Linux.
