Game Development With Pythonista
Going to try and get some thoughts from you all here in the forums.
I was thinking about creating a game in Pythonista.
Would there be anybody that we like me to record tutorials on creation of the game, but also the process of uploading the game to the App Store using the Xcode Template?
I’ve been wanting to get a YouTube channel started for fun on the side, and I believe this would be a good way to kick it off.
In a world where Pythonista would be actively maintained by @omz I would be 100% for it. But at this stage, even the XCode template is not up-to-date, and unfortunately we don’t know if Pythonista will still be available in the App Store in a few months. So, sadly, I think your audience might be disappointed at some point.
Game creation is a hard and long process, I wouldn’t recommend anyone who would want to learn & invest time on that topic to use Pythonista, only because the app could vanish tomorrow. Or in 1 year. We don’t know. Sadly.
That’s a pitty. I really think Pythonista would really do the job on game development. It’s far better than any alternative so far - including Codea. I’ve been working during my spare time on an adventure game generator, and found no limit in this task.
@momorprods That’s definitely a fair assessment. I’ve tried Codea and want to get behind Lua and all the awesome features the app has, but Pythonista is just an amazing IDE and what you can do on it is endless. I end up missing it too much whenever I am toying around with Codea.
