For 2D in python you can go with pygame

download from www.pygame.org or run "apt-get install python-pygame"

You seem to assume that he is using a Unix or Unix-like OS for that apt-get command.

That makes a nice change from assuming Windows and providing a link to the "setup.exe".

 

However, it does specifically assume a Debian based Linux distro (probably Ubuntu) as opposed to UNIX-like in general but it certainly is a start towards popularity of developing games on open-source platforms smile.png

Mutiny - Open-source C++ Unity re-implementation.
Defile of Eden 2 - FreeBSD and OpenBSD binaries of our latest game.

I learn way better by reading sample code, over any books or tutorials.

 

If you want to give it a try, go here:

http://rampantgames.com/hackenslash

 

It's an open source game, made with pygame afaik.

 

Btw, I always recommend starting with the most up-to-date versions of anything, unless they are officially not recommended.

Download from the website or from a repository. Can't see how he assumes that...

The website only has Windows and Mac packages and the instructions and links it provides on how to get the Linux packages are pretty darn poor

 

it is 5 clicks total to get to the correct package for Ubuntu through the pygame.org website(it provides a search link and doesn't mention the full name of the package), and then i have to know exactly which version of the package i want and avoid the sourcecode packages, at the end when its time to select a download mirror the ubuntu website will provide me with a strong recommendation to use the package manager instead. My only assumption was that most Ubuntu/Debian/Mint/etc users would find that quite annoying.

 

(i can't seem to make a apt:python-pygame clicky link on these forums, otherwise i would have done that instead since copy&pasting is annoying as well)

I do hope you have some already simple games under your belt. An rpg isn't easy to code, even if its a simple one
