Python List Comprehensions! (And Python / Pygame Update!)

Hello all! Since my last hooded development post I have succeeded in loading a map from a file! Here's how I did it:

Hello guys! If you don't know, I've been working on a new game called Hooded. It's a Side-Scroller with some basic RPG elements that I'll be working on for at least a month or two from now. This is my first development blog! Right now I've finished the Linear Algebra and General Math sections, and the Input handler. The...
