Fun and Easy Game Programming with PyGame

As part of opportunistic developer week later today, I will be doing a session on PyGame. PyGame makes it really easy and fun to write a game.

I've been wanting to create a PyGame template for Quickly, so I used this opportunity for motivation to take a game that I wrote a couple of years ago, and simplify it into boiler plate. With the addition of template command inheritance, I think that it will be easy to make this a functional template for Quickly 4.0.

In the meantime, I pushed the code to a project. Feel to grab it and start modifying it to make your own game. Note, however, that the code is not formatted in a standard way, nor is it commented yet. I will fix those issues as I get a chance.

Anyway, maybe I'll see you at the session.

  2. In readers opinions, can a successful game be created from a template? Or is the market so saturated with games that an absolutely novel platform/ system is necessary? How do graphics come into play? These are key elements of game programming, and I'm looking to design my own game soon.

  3. Nice article, thanks for the information. It's very complete information. I will bookmark for next reference
