Pyxel - a retro game engine for Python



If you are a child of the 80’s and 90’s you propably grew up playing games on nintendo and other gaming platforms. This experience is now brought to you by python  and the pyxel module. My course is about teaching you the building blocks that enable you to create your own games. The pyxel module has the below features:

  • Runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux
  • Code writing with Python3
  • Fixed 16 color palette
  • 256×256 sized 3 image banks
  • 256×256 sized 8 tilemaps
  • 4 channels with 64 definable sounds
  • 8 musics which can combine arbitrary sounds
  • Keyboard, mouse, and joystick(WIP) inputs
  • Image and sound editor

By the end of the course you will be able to create a game with a moving block collecting stars and pixels for points.
