The potential problem I see here is (un)availability of source (or
binary in this case) tarballs to everybody, and that includes SBo admins
wanting to test your build scripts against those tarballs.  If these
games can be downloaded freely and only require some sort of activation
to play, then the fact that they're commercial software shouldn't be an
issue.  I believe SBo already contains SlackBuilds for this sort of
software, although I don't have any examples to point you at.

Yep, they should be as close to SBo templates as possible, but feel free
to do things differently if it makes sense.

I think your grammar is great, but I'm not a native English speaker. :-)
