Not sure how I feel about packaging this considering the author(s) charge 8.99USD on itch.io and Steam for it.

But we already have Lugaru in the repo, which is also open source and selling on Steam.

It's also not the full game.

We have included enough of the game data to run the demo version. Please note that the game data is not under the GPL, and forbids commercial redistribution.

Hmm...That is true. From what I could tell on their github page, it appears they're hoping people who discover the game will purchase it if they end up liking it, with this comment on the releases page:

This is the first full version of Cendric released on GitHub.
If you enjoy the game, consider supporting us by buying Cendric on Steam (with achievements and automatic updates!) or Itch.io

Were we to include that message on the package description in the software manager, I almost wonder if it'd help boost sales/popularity slightly, since Linux folk tend to be generous towards things they like. :)

However, this is indeed a bit of a grey area. I'll open up an issue on their github to ask their permission.

Huzzah! The Cendric devs have responded, and are quite alright with Cendric being added to the Solus repo. Here's the link to their response.

Very kind and stand-up folks. ^_^

DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

I would recommend waiting for the next release because current stable version (1.0.4) uses bundled libraries while in the next release a build option USE_SYSTEM_SFML is available. This depends on D3448
