That's probably caused by the dashboard glitch that accidentally orphaned
packages a while ago.

It might be nice to know which ones are still working and building. I
think that the 2 games which are not in x86_64 don't build anymore.
Eventually, we'll need to rebuild them all to have the licence included in
the package. If they don't build anymore and if there are no patches/fixes
out there, it's no use to fix their licence in svn.
