My Pyweek's 25 Summary
I was near to give up again this time. Somehow it was really hard for me to concentrate on coding due to a lot of daily liabilities in my family life this week. Fortunately I took some days off from office - beside work it would have been even harder.
But who cares...I am very happy to have an result now. According to the quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.", I had to make something which fit to my time I could invest and to my current skills.
This forced me to be minimalistic: minimal number of colours, no artwork, instead eveything based on squares, only two levels to fit the theme, music and sound from opengameart, no special effects.
For the next time, I guess it would make sense for me to use a game engine (pygame zero, arcade, serge). But anyway, I have to do some training with the chosen engine before - without being already a little bit familiar how the engine works it might be not an advantage at the end.
There is still so much to learn and experiment with. Until now my aim was mainly to understand the concepts from the ground up and that's why I did not want to switch to a more abstract game engine than pygame in the past.
