Richard Jones' Log: PyWeek Game Programming Challenge dates set!

Fri, 08 Jul 2005

The date for the first PyWeek challenge has been set: Sunday August 28 to Sunday September 4 (00:00UTC to 00:00UTC). The PyWeek competition:

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

Entries must be developed during the competition, and must incorporate some theme decided at the start of the competition.
