Could you explain how to run this?

Even after installing pygame, I'm getting an error saying "module 'pygame' does not exist."

@Sheep: you need Python and pygame to run. Then just run the python script LostPlanet.py in python.

@mattchu: It seems it can't find the pygame you installed. I will say I used python 2.7 to write/run this, so no idea how it works on 3.x. I verified just now in both ubuntu 11.10 and windows 7(with 2.7).

It works fine for me running python2.7+pygame on Linux. I like games where you explore, but this needs something to make it possible to do that. Maybe even just "warmer... warmer.... colder..." or something.

Would like to play, but I have no idea what to do with this. I assume I should install pygame, but damn. I don't want to learn python's package management system.

You might take a look at this:


And see if you can make it work for your game in order to get some more plays, as the majority of people are not going to want to install python/pygame.

@ericdpitts: I tried using py2exe and cxfreeze right after the compo was over, but it seems there were some serious issues with both solutions(I think is related to the pygame font lib) that made unusable exes. I was only able to get something working by removing all uses of font.


Anyone who may know how to fix the bundle problem, please send help.

Kudos for using pygame. Unfortunately, the game lacks a lot of things to be fun, but congrats for finishing your game.
