you cant get the GCN or GBA SDKs unless nintendo contacts you pretty much, they decided not to release the SDKs because they would be too high in demand, plus i doubt you have the resources to actually publish a playable version of the game
ie. Mini DVD burners, and the stuff they use to check localization of the disk

Commercial games, I don''t know, but the python page points to several games done with python. How much python, I don''t know, I haven''t checked their source code (open source is good).

I''d assume python can handle game scripting since you can call C from python and vice-versa.

I''m learning that language myself, so I won''t elaborate further.

Hi

Python itself is really good. Even small games can be written with Python easily.
For real games - Python is often too slow.

Python can also be used as scripting language in games. The only disadvantage is the overhead to allow the execution of C++ methods within Python - but it is possible.

That''s why I''m currently working on another scripting language similar to C++/Java which is tightly connected with the C++ Engine which allows calling C++ method from the Scripting Engine with nearly no overhead!
