Pygame wrapper for learners, jammers and educators
gamestart - a pygame wrapper for beginners and game jammers
This is a high level api wrapper for pygame, for making games with Python easier and quicker.
Heavily inspired by pygame-zero, Scratch, bitsbox, and game engines such as unity,
I think there is an opportunity to design a set of API both satisfy the need of beginners
and game makers who wish a quick result.
- some built-in assets for quick starting and code learning scenarios
- draw loops are managed, so users can focus on actor and scene building
Quick minimal example
from gamestart import * actor('monster') start()
This draws a monster on the screen...
Why another pygame wrapper?
Why not pygame-zero
Gamestart takes over draw loop management. This makes user code shorter and allowing
future scene management features.
Gamestart also comes with some built-in asset, for starters and prototypers.
Gamestart games are run with just Python - it is an option for pygame-zero, but a default in gamestart
Why not processing.py
Gamestart is driven by Python, instead a Python-Java middle layer.
Gamestart manages the draw loop.

Look at the root folder - files like 1_quickstart.py are examples.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
