= Game Programming With Python =
You can write whole games in Python using [[http://www.pygame.org/|PyGame]]. See a list of other PythonGameLibraries maintained in this Wiki, or [[http://www.devmaster.net/engines/list.php?fid=6&sid=11|this list maintained on DevMaster.net]]. A full tutorial can be found in the free book [[http://inventwithpython.com/pygame|"Making Games with Python & Pygame"]].

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.

There's also some books that specifically cover game programming in Python:

[[http://inventwithpython.com/|http://inventwithpython.com]]

 . [[http://inventwithpython.com/|"Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python"]] is a free, Creative Commons-licensed book on Python for complete beginners with no experience programming. Each chapter has the source code for a small game such as Tic Tac toe, Hangman, Reversi, and others. The final chapters provide an introduction to Pygame.

http://inventwithpython.com/pygame

 . [[http://inventwithpython.com/pygame|"Making Games with Python & Pygame"]] is also a free, Creative Commons-licensed book that assumes a small amount of Python programming experience. It goes into more detail with the Pygame library. There is the source code for games such as Tetris, Connect Four, Simon, Sokoban, and others.

 . "Ever want to develop your own computer game? Learn the practical concepts of object-oriented programming for game design using Python in this easy-to-follow, content-filled guide. Whether you're a student, aspiring game developer, or veteran programmer, you'll gain skills as you progress from station to station in a series of clear-cut tutorials on different styles of games. The last stop will be a finished game program for you to show off."
