Pygame is an open-source program that allows enthusiast gamers, students, and professional coders to use a wide array of pre-configured Python modules to design and build video games. The components of this utility are based on the Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) library and allow users of medium to advanced levels to build their own real-time video graphics, sound events, and code every gameplay element using Python programming language, without the need to manually be in contact low-level programming that is commonly used today with C programming language and may of its modern derivatives.

Originally built in late 2000 as the replacement for the abandoned PySDL programming environment, developer Pete Shinners has continued with regular upgrades of this open-source project, enhancing it with countless useful addons and preparing it for future expansions. A true successor of Pygame called “Pygame Reloaded” was actively in development since 2009, but so far there is still no concrete information when it will be released to the public.

Users of this development platform can use simple Python programming techniques to create any multimedia application they imagine, with the ability to integrate art, sounds, music, videos, and other features needed to create a functioning game. And because the entirety of the coding is done in Python, the ease of writing code enables even enthusiast gamers to start learning about modern game design. The app created with Pygame can be reproduced either directly on PC, or even optimized and deployed on Android mobile devices.

It is important to note that this utility is still using Simple DirectMedia Layer version 1, which was introduced to the public more than two decades ago. Since it lacks the ability to integrate with SDL version 2 that was released to the public in 2012, many programmers are today opting to skip Pygame and focus their attention on more modern game development environments.

Pygame Python modules are old, but it provides great learning experience focused on now surpassed versions of Python development environment. With multiple alternatives that are easier to use and learning, only hardcore programmers and enthusiasts will find great value from this app.

Pygame is 100% FREE and optimized for all modern versions of Windows OS. It is offered for public use as open-source free software GNU Lesser General Public License.
