You don't need to do that, and indeed you probably shouldn't as games
aren't really any different than any other application. Some tips on
packaging games are at

regular packaging guidelines are all under

Installing the file is the proper way to go about it. You can use cp or
install; it's up to you. Seems kind of odd installing an svg into a
directory named "pixmaps" but a quick repoquery shows quite a number of
packages which do that so it must be OK.
