If there's any pythonistas in the group, or if anybody wants to wet their feet in python game dev, pyweek is in a month and a lot of fun. I'll probably do it this year.
The date for the ninth PyWeek challenge has been set:
Sunday 30th August to Sunday 6th September (00:00UTC to 00:00UTC)
The PyWeek challenge invites entrants to write a game in one week from scratch either as an individual or in a team. Entries must be developed
in Python, during the challenge, and must incorporate some theme chosen at the start of the challenge.
REGISTRATION IS NOT YET OPEN --
Registration will open one month before the start date. See the competition timetable and rules:
PLANNING FOR THE CHALLENGE --
Make sure you have working versions of the libraries you're going to use. The rules page has a list of libraries and other resources.
Make sure you can build packages to submit as your final submission (if you're going to use py2exe, make sure you know how to use it and that it works).
If you don't have access to Linux, Windows or a Mac to test on, contact friends, family or other competitors to find someone who is able to test for you.
