PyWeek

Well on Sunday, Matt managed to get our PyWeek game coding contest entry submitted at literally the last minute. The theme for this one was “the only way is up”. Our game, “Gasbag Follies” is pretty simple, much simpler than our previous effort, this time you simply collect enough balloons to float to the top of the level.

This time around, I only really managed to contribute music, which got accidentally disabled in the version that got submitted. To turn it back on, edit lib/main.py and find the line that says pygame.mixer.music.play(-1) (should be around line number 71) and take the ‘#’ out from in front of it.

Download it from here: http://pyweek.org/e/vi/

You can also get “The Extraterrorestrial” (our game from last time) here: http://pyweek.org/e/hci/
I did music for that one, as well as some code and a fair bit of artwork as well.
