I recently started to program using python to learn (later I want to learn Java and C). And now I think Im ready for developing a very simple game. My question: What is the BEST 2d game engine for python?
Thanks smile.png

Pygame all the way, for a beginner.

PySDL2 and Pyglet are good and gaining traction, but I would really recommend pygame if you are starting out.

 

* As stated below, these are not game "engines" per se, but as of right now, you will not find a 2d game engine unless you want to use an outdated version of python (i.e. 2.4, 2.5, 2.6) but if you don't mind that I guess there's Cocos2d.

None of those are game engines. That's not to say they're bad libraries though.

 

Personally I suspect that you don't really need a "game engine", especially for simple 2d games. If you find a suitable engine, great. If you don't, it's not a disaster either, your game might work just as well with a custom-written one especially if it's simple.
