Can you give us a description that actually gives us an idea of what
we'd get when we install the package?  As it is, you need to go to the
upstream URL, and this terse description really doesn't do the game
justice.

Also, this is a paid indie game.  Why are we distributing it, even if
the license allows us to?  Did upstream ask you to?  Did you ask them if
they want it done?

Neat game, though.

I haven't got as far as downloading it yet, so I couldn't give any
accurate description. I will probably need to read a bunch of blog posts
and reviews first to do it justice anyway. If you do a search you will
find some of those and there are a bunch of screenshots on the site IIRC

I asked upstream if that was OK, he said yes and encouraged me to add it
to Debian. He has been making his games cross-platform and freely
licensed for many years, this one is only paid so he can feed his
family. I will probably mention his donation page in README.Debian or
similar, which isn't without precedent (vim).

Indeed, looking forward to trying it.

He has some more games coming that I will probably package too:

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of sleepisdeath back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting sleepisdeath, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 611793 ITP: sleepisdeath -- a storytelling game for two players
 owner 611793 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <611793@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
