What should it be detected as?


Additional information

(Note: There's no box in the issue form to provide additional details when relevant, might be worth adding.)

Luck be a Landlord is made with Godot, but it's a tricky one to detect as it uses the "Embed PCK" option that embeds the .pck file with the game data inside the Godot executable (so it ships as a single .exe).

There's one way this can still be detected if we have access to the Mac files, as the .pck is included in the .app:

Luck be a be a Landlord.pck

There's no "Embed PCK" option for macOS exports, so for games which do provide a macOS build this should be a fairly good rule.

There's literally only an exe file, not much we can do about it.

At least the mac build has a pck (so if we apply same logic of checking the name as we do for exe, that would work).

Thanks for the fix! While browsing other entries detected as Godot, I noticed something that might warrant a slight adjustment to your fix:

This is very likely a Godot game (Edit: confirmed), but note how the .app name and the .pck name differ. The .pck actually has to match the name of the game binary:

文字遊戲:第零章.app/Contents/MacOS/Word Game
文字遊戲:第零章.app/Contents/Resources/Word Game.pck

They should respectively always be in Contents/MacOS/ and Contents/Resources/, but the .app itself can have an arbitrary name.
