PyWeek, the Python games programming contest, is coming up next week.Many of you will have heard me bang on about PyWeek quite a lot over the years - if so, sorry! It's a games programming contest where you are challenged to write a game from scratch, in a week. You don't need to spend a whole week - I just do evenings, for example - and winning games have been written in an afternoon.This week is theme voting week, in which we vote on theme options. The winning theme - to which games must somehow be linked - will be announced on Sunday 00:00 UTC when the contest starts. The options this time are:
Do any of these plant the seed of inspiration in your brain? Perhaps you could create a 2D game with Pygame or a 3D game with OpenGL... or maybe a web-based game with Flask... or perhaps an immersive augmented reality game played out over social media, chaperoned by the mysterious @Ajax (Oooh, I might do this myself!).The point is: challenge yourself to do something creative; stretch your Python muscles; finish something; have people play it and send you feedback. You can enter as a team or as an individual. Why not register an entry and give it a go?
