September 2013 challenge: “Moon”
To play the games listed here, you may need to install Python (typically 2.5+). PyGame, pyglet or PyOpenGL. See the game's README file for specific requirements. Windows or OS X users downloading the versions of games specific to them shouldn't need to install anything.

Being a werewolf has many advantages, but it isn't great for paying the bills. Insurance claims assesors willing to go the extra mile (to Saturn's moons, for example) are, however, paid exceedingly well.
Money, and plentiful moonlight. What more could one ask for?
If only the low gravity didn't make it so hard to keep the paperwork in order.
Due to post pyweek tiredness, we didn't correctly separate packing work form some bugfixes that crept in after the deadline, and didn't have the energy to sort everything out, so the windows, MacOS and debian packages include a few changes that aren't strictly part of the pyweek entry. None of the changes should significantly affect gameplay, but if you want to judge the final submission, use the nagslang-0.1.tgz upload
The following things were fixed:
- Fix the acid animation which got lost in the last few minutes of pyweek
- Correctly cleanup on scene changes so we don't constantly leak memory
- Improve checks on the sound system so we don't crash if ogg files aren't read correctly
When seriously disturbed, they will put on a "ferocious" threat display that includes coiling up, inflating the body (making the dark markings stand out), hissing and puffing loudly, flattening the anterior portion of the body, and striking frantically. Striking is done with such vigor that small specimens may lift themselves off the ground entirely.

- smatx-0.3.2.tar.gz — This is a fully playable version, it is 'finished'. If I don't get the chance to add sounds later this is the final version. (2.32 Mbytes on 2013/09/07)
- PW17_v1.0.zip — final (3.03 Mbytes on 2013/09/08)
But the Moon is gone, so she has to recycle garbages collecting the lunar dust to build it up again.
1.Collect garbages in the space with your ship.
2.Grab with the girl and put them in the correct recycle box. Every correctly rycicled garbage gives you some lunar dust.
3.Once dust is 100% (the red number) go to Earth and take one piece of moon.
4.Take the piece of moon to the Moon.
5.Do it 3 times to rebuild the Moon.
-ship movements are reflected on things inside it
-if dustgirl gets out of the ship try to re-catch her before she goes out of the screen
-if you recycle wrong, you fill the recycle box but you don't get any lunar dust
-you can't recycle if the box is full. go to the Earth to empty it
-pay attention when bouncing on asteroids
-avoid alines, they will try to steal your lunar dust. if tehy get into the ship you can still recycle them
-forgive us for unconfortable control keys

Windows Post-release release notes
Apparently there may be problems in the Windows package. I don't have a clean machine to test this on. It may help to install AVBin - maybe even drop c:\Windows\system32\avbin.dll into the unpacked directory. You may also need to cd into the same directory as run_game.exe before running it.
64-bit post-release release notes
If you are running 64-bit Python but have lepton installed from a distro or a previous Pyweek, the particles will probably come out wrong. Flickery particles or weird cross-shapes in the explosions are symptoms of this. I found and fixed more 64-bit bugs in Lepton during this competition. The updated version is in the package or my lepton repo.
Any information or bug reports would be appreciated; please leave a message in the comments below.

Defeat the ruling factions of each zone of the Moon before getting caught.
Each turn help the rebels to enact their plans to weaken the factions by using your activity points.
You are stronger where your hideout is located.

- Loon-0.1.zip — Initial Release (774.45 Kbytes on 2013/09/07)
The Loons have a problem we can sympathize with -- global warming. Lakes and rivers are drying up, croplands are turning to dust, and it's becoming really hard to find any ice for a rum and coke. So they've come up with a plan -- move to the moon!
Help the Loons build a colony on their moon. Mine resources, build habitats, farms, factories, everything needed to make them feel at home. Support a big enough population and you may just save the Loons from extinction.

- miner_pyweek.tar.gz — The MINER source code (34.77 Kbytes on 2013/09/08)
Miner is a dig-and-gather-resources game. You are Sam, a Moon resource miner who must gather resources from the Moon surface.
* Randomly generated Moon surface using, well, the random-module.
* Destructible environment, much like Minecraft in 2D.
* Menu system. I made up a rather quick and dirty menu system, but it works just awesome and I like it.
Originally planned features
* Another planet in the background - doh! I wanted it to be a pixelized version of Earth.
* Procedural moon landscape. I wanted the player to be able to dig as deep and explore as much of the Moon surface as he wanted to.
* Better gameplay. I should have worked better on the core ideas of the gameplay. The game can be challenging, but it will be repetitive in the end.
I am happy that I finished the game and did my first PyWeek! That's just great.
There are plenty of things I would have done differently, however.
First of all I probably shouldn't have been off-the-grid for 5 days of the challenge.
I also now know that it's very important to rethink your gameplay/challenge before starting the programming.
The challenge was great, however. And I enjoyed it!

Two decades have passed since the first corporation established a permanent lunar base under the surface of the Moon.
Today the Lunar Commerce Commission maintains a frail balance between the different corporations competing for mineral resources.
Accidents are frequent, although officials refuse to admit that they're due to sabotage or an undercover war for the rich lunar underground.
Please download the source code for Linux and Mac or the binary bundle (ready to go) for Windows. Check README.txt for instructions.

Note: Please read the README. You may want to use the resolution switches, especially if the default window doesn't fit your screen well.

Some people (actually just one person) have difficulties of running this game with provided pyglet package. You can try to remove it and use system default one.
