Thank you

Thank you all for the comments. 
Hope next time will have more time to give you a real game.
Consider this as a proof of concept.

Final game uploaded

Well, I had no time for documentation, help menu, artwork and many other things.

By the way, unzip the file journey.zip and execute main.py.

For playing you'll need a compatible webcam and something with 2 areas of a bright colour that will be your input device. (see video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlaJ8NHRFek)
In configuration you can left-click for choosing the color to be tracked and use wheel for adjusting threshold. Once you see the tracking is well calibrated, right-click.

If there's no compatible webcam, mouse input will be used.

The gameplay is simple, you drive a miniaturized ship and make viruses to crash against each others while avoid to touch them.

Enjoy!

A Fantastic Journey

Well, I have some ideas about the game. It will be inspired in the novel "a fantastic journey".

You will drive a miniaturized ship through someone's body and will have to somehow kill bacterias visuses and whatever.

Game controls will be based on colour tracking with a webcam, accelerometer (android) or just mouse (if other things are missing).
