Zahmekoses: A short history and brief definition

Catnapped by ServalKatze to particiapte with her as team "zahmeKatzen" at the PyWeek competition April 2007, he found himself quickly familiar at this competition and continued the work with ServalKatze on other games and PyWeek challenges [though none of these games are finished... yet.].

He has limited understanding of programming with Python and - according to himself - absolutely no idea about programming in general (although he can't stop nitpicking on Serval's Code... and, mysteriously, does work as programmer for a living during his "non-pyweek-non-sleep-time"). Thus, with no official programming/coding skills at hand he just did take over the part of placing pixels with the most professional tool available - M$ Paint - and uses his brain idle time during pixeling for finding more ways to get the game more complicated with more features and functions (which ends up in getting games more and more into something puzzling-logic-thingie, which does not seem to be that enjoyful for the greater part of PyWeek-participatns.. Need. To. Improve. Fun. In. Game. Design.).


"Next time I will use mtPaint for my pixel art!"(TM)
Announced after the April 2007 competition and also announced after the September 2007 competition and also (secretly) announced after the March 2008 competition... Still working with M$ Paint..
