Encroaching Darkness

by redwire - Jam Entry

This game was built on Mac OS X using Python 2.7.2 and Pygame 1.9.1. It ran fine in 32-bit mode (arch -i386 python main.py).
It was also tested in Ubuntu Linux 11.04 under Python 2.7.1 and the same version of Pygame. It was run with "python main.py".

I have been told it also works with Python 2.6. Even still, Python 2.7 is recommended.

P.S. Yes, my username on github is different than the one I used here.

How do you start playing the game?

Oops, I was looking in the readme and didn't see ""python main.py" in the description above.

I received this error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 3, in <module>
import pygame
ImportError: No module named pygame

ran ok....it REALLY dumps you into the game though, i was hit twice before i figured out i could move, and was gameover not a second after i realized i could shoot. Sound would have helped a lot too.

Rusty Moyher: I'm sorry that's an issue for you. You need to install pygame before you can start playing.
I apologize for the fact that I couldn't do much to handle distribution- plain source release is about all I can do.
If you install pygame, it should work fine, though.

Thank you both for playing so far!

It's good that you had different enemies. Would have been nice to be able to shoot in different directions, not just up. Here's a tip. Use pygame.key.get_pressed rather than key events for motion, so's I don't have to keep hitting the direction I want to go.

I've not been able to get pygame running so I can't rate it.

Worked OK in Win7 + Python 2.7.2 + pygame 1.9.2pre. Good idea and you finish your game. Unfortuntately, it lacks a lot of things.
