Hello everyone.

 

I was wondering if anyone could recommend me some quality material on Python and Blender game development. Books, sites, tutorials, videos, everything's welcome.

 

Thanks in advance!

I have been enjoying the free course offered here: http://gryllus.net/Blender/3D.html

I also bought the suggested textbook: http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-Guide-Blender-Graphics/dp/1466517034

 

So far I am picking things up rather quickly using these resources on Blender3d.

 

As for Python there is an extraordinary amount of reference material and tutorials on the internet. A simple Google search will turn up many useful results. Is there a particular version you are targeting? In most cases the documentation right from the main site at http://www.python.org will be very useful.

I second this.  It is designed like a college course with assignments and projects.  Really helped me get into Blender.

Thanks for the replies!

 

You see, I have a book on Blender 3D, and I've been studying Python for some time. However, I have no material on game development using the Blender game engine and the Python programming language, together sad.png

I would make sure you understand the non-game engine aspects of Blender first.  Once you are comfortable with those, I would go through this tutorial.

After that, you will probably use the API a lot.  I would also suggest registering an account at blenderartists.org.  It's a great community and the people responsible for developing and maintaining the BGE post on there daily.  People there are very beginner friendly and you usually receive quick, accurate answers.

I know of one that's really good. I've been saying I'll play around in it for a bit, but I never get around to it.
