A 2-D engine for Python and pygame

Project description

This package is made to fast prototype your multimedia applications like games on pygame. Write clean and pragmatic design. It lets you focus on the game engine itself, so you dont have to take care about several details like setting up the window, loading and cheking data (images, sound, font, fx, music, resources names…). All you need to do is to put your resources into a specific data folder and use them in your game class ‘MyEngine()’.

You don’t need to reinvent the wheel, some repetitive parts of code (main loop, getting the delta time, closing the window, drawing text…) are already described and ready to use in the default engine.

Usage example

from laylib import Environment
from engine import Engine

def main():
    demo = Environment(800, 600, False, 'My game')
    demo.load_complete(Engine(), 'data', 'resources.res')

if __name__ == "__main__":


First, install the dependencies: - Python3 (3.5 or later) <> - Pygame 1.9.1 or later <> Or run in terminal:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Then install laylib:

$ pip install laylib

Or alternatively, you can just copy the “laylib” folder into the same directory as the Python program that uses it.


For usage see examples provided with laylib. For more details, all other parts of documentation are described in the source file.
