Well, in practice Castle Game Engine "outgrown" the old castle-game :)
We wrote a lot of games using CGE since then.

If you want to learn CGE, I would not recommend the castle-game source
code now as a starting point, even if we would resolve the licensing
issues of castle-game data.

Instead run the editor, and use "New Project" with "3D FPS Game"
template. This is a very simple project that should get you started :)

We also have "examples/fps_game/" , although I'm working now on
remaking it to use a better, simpler API. But in next CGE 7.0-alpha2,
the "examples/fps_game/" should rock :)

Thank you for taking care of CGE in Debian -- I observe the other
threads, it is great you got it going!
