- Invites all Python programmers to write a game in one week from scratch either as an individual or in a team, - Is intended to be challenging and fun, - Will hopefully increase the public body of python game tools, code and expertise, - Will let a lot of people actually finish a game, and - May inspire new projects (with ready made teams!)

Entries must be developed during the challenge, and must incorporate some theme decided at the start of the challenge. The rules for the challenge are at:



The limitation of not using pre-existing libraries and artwork is a deterrent. You might be able to talk more game creators with advanced skills into competing, if those limitations didn't exist.

I think you should allow pre-existing libraries, but only if they supply the source code with the game. To me, this contest is more of a 'watch how I code' exhibition more than anything, and I think it would be fun to loosen the rules to let more advanced game creators participate.
