Using Pygame for Games [ID:967]

a series of video-tutorials by Kenny X

Learn how to make games with Python's amazing pygame library! It's much more simple than C++ or Java, and games are easy to make with pygame. This series will introduce you to pygame and will teach you to make a couple games.

Video Tutorials

1. Pygame tutorial - Installation

In this tutorial screencast you will learn how to install pygame on Linux, Mac, and Windows. I explain what you can find on http://pygame.org/download.shtml and how to find out if pygame wasn't installed correctly.

2. Pygame tutorial - Blitting and moving an image

In this tutorial you will learn how to blit an image, fill a surface, and move an image. The game will be a ball bouncing across the screen and hitting the walls. Features include Rects, Surfaces, and frames per second managed time. This will be used to make the game.

3. Pygame tutorial - Gameplay

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add actual gameplay in your game. You will learn about MOUSEBUTTON and how to make mouse input. It will be an extension of the previous tutorial, where when you click the ball it will go faster and your score will increase.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Kenny
