This package contains music and sounds from blobwars 1.17 (slightly modified to work with the binary in blobwars 1.19).

The backstory: Version 1.17 is the last version made by the game's original authors (Parallel Realities). They just used music and sounds found on the Internet -- their origin and licensing status is uncertain. Later, maintainers from Fedora or Debian (I'm not sure) replaced the music and sounds with Creative Commons-licensed alternatives. The new sounds and music are free, but I think they aren't as good as the old version. So if you want to play blobwars as it was originally created (and you don't mind using potentially non-free data), replace blobwars-data with this package.
