Welcome to Pygame Zero

Pygame Zero is for creating games without boilerplate.

It is intended for use in education, so that teachers can teach basic programming without needing to explain the Pygame API or write an event loop.

Pyweek Game Jam

If you’re ready to try writing a full game, an event to look out for is PyWeek, which happens twice a year at https://pyweek.org/.

It’s an online game programming challenge: you have a week to write a game in Python, using Pygame Zero or other libraries. Lots of other people will be writing games too, and you can watch their progress and play and rate the finished results after the competition.
