Python and Game Development

I’m pretty new to Ludum Dare. I just recently got into game development, but I’ve been programming for years. I’ve been using python 3 with the pygame library for game development. Around the website, I’ve seen a few people using python as well. I’ve heard python isn’t the best for game development, and I’m using it currently because that’s the main language I’ve been coding in. I have a few questions about python and game development:

Is python good for game development? Why or why not?

Are there any tools or libraries you would recommend?

Have you used python for game development in the past, and do you currently?

Right now my impression is that, as python is a high level language, it is slower for memory intensive games. If I continue with game development, I would probably switch to another language. So far I haven’t had any problems with it, because I’ve been programming pretty simplistic 2D games.

Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I’m in and excited!

Hi everyone!

I’m excited to say that it’s Summer for me and that means I can join in on this Ludum Dare Competition coming next weekend!

I am going to be using Python and Pygame 3.3 to program my game and going to try to learn enough to make a simple game for the compo and if not in time to memorize everything, I will enter the Jam so I can at least finish the game and learn a lot in Python and Pygame!

I am still searching for an easy solution to export pygame’s for all OS’ and if any of you have solutions to this problem please comment below to help me out!

I can’t wait to finish a game with Pygame and I hope this is the weekend that I will do it!

Happy programming everyone! Good luck and Have Fun!
