In Topic: Starting in Python: best graphics module?

01 April 2012 - 11:48 AM

I recommend Pygame (http://www.pygame.org).

It's a great library that is very easy to use. There's a lot of documentation, including a few free books, to get you going.

My personal favourite is pygame. http://pygame.org/news.html

But if you want Java, slick is a good framework. As far as I know you can create applets with it.

In Topic: Free engine for 2d games

BYOND may be what you're after. (http://www.byond.com/)

It's an engine geared around making 2D online tile-based RPGs easily (though it has been used to create all sorts of games).

It handles the tile-based mechanics and all the netcode - meaning you just have to build your world.

The language it uses is intuitive and there's a great community for code problems.

With the scope of what we know about the project, a graph may be overkill. It would be more fun to implement imo though :X

The game I'm making is a simple, no-frills perfect maze game so I think graphs may indeed be overkill.

I think they may be useful for something like a rogue-like, which is something I'd definitely like to program in the future but for now I'll keep it simple.
