Game Programming With Python

You can write whole games in Python using PyGame. See a list of other PythonGameLibraries maintained in this Wiki, or this list maintained on DevMaster.net.

If you have an existing game and want to add a scripting engine to make it more flexible, Python is also a very good choice. But you'll have to learn about IntegratingPythonWithOtherLanguages.

Read Humongous Python for a case study.

Read Python game programming tutorial. Or if you need object-oriented design read Yet another game programming tutorial.

Two pages that are dedicated for python in 3d are Python 3D(py3d.org) and Python 3D Software

PyWeek is a bi-annual programming challenge that produces several great games.
