PyWeek 10 (10!) is coming

The 10th Python Game Programming Challenge (PyWeek) is coming. It'll run from the 28th of March to the 4th of April.

The PyWeek challenge:

  1. Invites entrants to write a game in one week from scratch either as an individual or in a team,
  2. Is intended to be challenging and fun,
  3. Will hopefully increase the public body of game tools, code and expertise,
  4. Will let a lot of people actually finish a game, and
  5. May inspire new projects (with ready made teams!)

If you've never written a game before and would like to try things out then perhaps you could try either:

  1. The tutorial I presented at LCA 2010, Introduction to Game Programming, or
  2. The book Invent Your Own Computer Games With Python
