Pygame distributable?

Recommended Posts

I've been playing with Pygame and have some ideas for games that I would like to make. Pygame seems to be a good fit for this process, but what about distributing the games once I've made them? Not that I'm thinking of becoming a game sales powerhouse, but if I want to pass it out to family/friends, what is the best path?

You can use py2exe to make an executable for your game and then include everything that it made with a NSIS installer so they just can install it on their own.

I had wondered about py2exe but I was concerned that the volume of dependencies coming along with Pygame would be overwhelming. Granted, I haven't tried this and I'm only speculating. Have you done this successfully?

I have done it with a single python file that had included a folder with art and sound also. I am currently trying to learn how to do it with multiple python files since I am split a lot of the code into their own classes now.
