Description : Open-source engine to run Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale
series and Planescape: Torment

GemRB (Game Engine Made with preRendered Background) is a new implementation
of the original Infinity Engine (the one of Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale,
Planescape: Torment, ...) to Linux/Unix, MacOS X and Windows with some

somewhere on your harddisk, or you can try to use the data from the
Dragonlance Total Conversion project.

partition and mounted to your Linux/Unix filesystem, installed on
windows and then copied to your filesystem, installed with WINE or
extracted manually from the CDs using the tool `unshield'.

Supported games: Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, Planescape:Torment.

The packages are already built and uploaded at mentors.debian.net:

I'm not a Debian Maintainer (whilst I would like to become one), and I don't
have rights to do more. Therefore I'm looking for a sponsor. I'm also looking
for advices and comments on the packaging.

The package sources and upstream mirror are available on GitHub:
