I am a decent coder who did python for 3 months then took a break and looking to get back in. I will probably start of slow but will learn more as time goes by.

Team: HuggyDaBuggy, HackyGamer


Probably a very small entry (if I manage one at all - work is very busy).

Gotta love PyWeek, one of the gems of the Python community.

Entrant: ntoll


This is my first time participating in PyWeek. I have been a developer for 7 years, and am on my last year of my master.
I am very excited to try this out and see what other people come up with!

I wish everybody the best of luck!

DISCORD: Plutto#9311

Entrant: pluttodk


# Who are we?
We're *ClicksMinutePer*, a small team of developers making cool stuff (we think it's cool ok) ok the internet. Our main pastimes are playing around with discord bots and tearing our hair out at the  ~̶d̶e̶b̶u̶g̶g̶e̶r̶~̶  print statements trying to diagnose the issue.

# Why does your URL say DragDev?
CMP Shut

# What are our ideas for the competition?
Our ideas are what they always are: bad. In all seriousness though, we will probably end up making a discord bot- that's what we know how to do best. Unless the theme turns out to be something like "first person shooter". We find that first person shooters generally don't work the best on discord.

# Will you be editing this page throughout the competition?
If I feel like it.

# Can I join?

# How can we contact you?
At the moment the best way is probably through our [discord server](, or in our discord DMs at *Minion3665#6456*, *TheCodedProf#2583*, *PineappleFan#9955* or *eek#4015*. If you need a slower response we also have email (**). If you want to never get answered, we'd suggest our github issue trackers.

> Thanks for looking at our page, and may the best team win, and may we come second!
> Good luck 🎉

Team: Minion3665, EEKIM10, PineappleFan, the_froggie, TheCodedProf


I am a starter python programmer who joined the python discord not a while ago and want to try out this contest for the first time :)

I have never built a game but this will be fun to try. From trying out at this contest I am hoping to learn and try expressing some creativity.

If you want to contact me for whatever reason the only place I check is discord:


I am also looking for another developer to join me. Beware, I am still a starter programmer.

Have fun everyone! :D

La Isla Finita


I want to make a game where the player has very little control.

Each action makes things worst.

The state of the island will change over time and actions of the player.

AI of my castaway is going to be something like FSM.

It's my second game jam. The first game is available here:

hi. i'm a relatively recent developper in python that's currently working on a danmaku, a discord card game bot and a 2d platformer. though i have yet to have any finished project up my belt, i'm progressing i would say fairly quickly due to my background in algorithm logic and a quite acceptable knowledge of game design if i may.

if anyone was to want to join me, i see no reason to not work in groups, and am open to anyone with enough knowladge to be just aware of what they are doing. though if i had to say what kind of skills i may need to fill up my skill holes, it would probably art.

you can contact me on discord as akasaka#8954.

No Name Yet

This is our first time participating in a game jam and we are novice programmers. We hope to improve our coding skills a bit and learn new things about game designing. Look forward to competing with other contestants.

Untitled Princess Carolyn Project

It has been a while...

I have had to do a lot of studying, C++ coding and report writing, but it seems I might finally have time for Pyweek again. I'm looking forward to working on a complete project for a change. No extensive use of maths libraries ... hahaha. It remains to be seen how ambitious this attempt will be. That probably depends on the theme.

Team Maple

We Are Team Maple

Lead by Maple Maelstrom

This is a private team that is made by and for Canadians.

I am Maple Maelstrom, leader of team Maple. I am 16 years old, soon to be 17. I have coded since grade 5, but only started using python last year for my grade 11 computer science course. There I created my first game that was 100% my own, using pygame. Since then, I have loved the python coding language.

If you are Canadian and wish to join us, DM me on discord. My tag is @Maple Maelstrom#2689, but if that doesn't work, look in the official python discord server for someone with a similar tag (Maple Maelstrom should usually be my name though). I don't expect the best people, I really just wanna have fun.

May or may not be a team of multiple living forms, guess it depends again on teammate trustability, once again.

By the way, still learning but at least with more knowledge this time.

Our creative teamname is indeed that gamemode in CSGO.

Razorvale Isle

I am building a browser game using Brython for the game logic and for the game engine.

Entrant: Quikli


I have started developing in Python a few months ago and really like the languages simplicity.
I used Pygame for a few smaller games now and really liked the engine so I will stick to it for this game-jam and
I hope to set my games focus not on graphics (my art skills are very limited), but rather have a nice mechanic that keeps the game joy up.

If someone wants to join my team, I want to warn you that I probably cant spend too much time (maybe like 10-15 hours) in the jams week, but I would really appreciate teaming up with you. (Just send a request)

Hello! I'm a beginner at python, I started using it to build a server and a recommendation algorithm for my fyp. I joined the python discord and found about pyweek and here I am! I've never made a game, neither have I collaborated on project before. Anyone regardless of skill level is welcome to join as I'm mostly looking to have fun, meet new people and collaborate on our game.
