Rejected Libre Games

This page lists games that have been rejected for inclusion in our Libre Game Recommendations list, and explains why they have been rejected. Please feel free to contact us if the issues mentioned here have been fixed, or if you disagree with the rejection.

Table of Contents:

Games Rejected for Lack of Distinction

The following games have been rejected because they fail to sufficiently distinguish themselves from other games that preceded them. This will usually be because they are too generic within their genre, although games that are arguably clones but not fit to be listed in the Clones section of the list may be listed here as well.

Games whose sole purpose for existing is to clone other games (i.e. that make no attempt whatsoever to distinguish themselves, or that even try to explicitly be as similar to the original game as possible) are not listed here.

Games Rejected for Incompleteness

The following games have been rejected because they don't feel like finished games, or because they are considered by the developers to be incomplete. If you are a game developer, please consider contributing to these projects to correct this.

Games Rejected for Causing Social Harm

The following games have been rejected because they cause some kind of social harm, such as perpetuating any kind of bigotry (including sanism, which is discussed in our article, Sanism in Media and Discourse), or supporting violent ideologies like fascism or Nazism. In most cases, particularly sanist rhetoric, the social harm caused is likely unintentional. If you like any of these games and want them on the list, please consider contributing to these games to fix the problems mentioned if their maintainers are receptive, or if they aren't, forking the project to fix the problems. Alternatively, if the mentioned problems have already been addressed, please let us know!
