Hi all,

Hope everyone's having a good weekend.

I've noticed that there is a pyweek game development competition coming
up and the thought entered my head that (some of) Ubuntu-UK might want
to put heads together and work on an entry.

For those that don't know pyweek is a regular competition that runs for
a week (this year it's 30th March till 6th April) and involves the
development of a game in Python.

It's not specifically Linux/Ubuntu based, but clearly we have a viable
development platform given we have Python / Pygame and all the other
necessary bits and bobs.

I just wondered if anyone else might be interested in contributing. At
first glance we would be in need of one or more programmers, musicians,
artists and testers, along with maybe project management (!) and
documentation roles to fill. 

Personally I know a little python but not enough to make a nice polished
game in a week, so I know I can't do this kind of thing on my own. I'd
see this as a great way to promote our community and show what we can
get done when we pull together. :)

For more details check out their site and look back through some
previous entries to get an idea of the level we're aiming at.

The two previous entries which I quite like are 'Nelly's Rooftop Garden'
- http://www.pyweek.org/e/rushed/ , and Trip on the Funny Boat -

Anyone else interested?
