Python Screencast: Making a Barebones pyGame Program
This is an introduction to pyGame games programming using Python, showing you how to write an Arinoid clone. Full source is available. Note that this video does not stream in the player above (unlike most of our ShowMeDo videos), due to a problem with the SWF file. You can play the original SWF file by clicking on this link. This code is based heavily on the Aliens example included in the Pygame source distribution and Line By Line Chimp Example. I encourage you to grab a copy of the source distribution - you can learn a lot just by reading the code. Resources: Full source-code is available in the wiki. If you like this video and you'd like to encourage Chuck, you can leave a comment for him here and vote for the series over at DZone.com.
