    Project mention: RoguelikeDev Does The Complete Roguelike Tutorial Starting July 4th 2023 | /r/roguelikedev | 2023-06-27

    That's cool, I didn't realize you had implemented an ECS library for tcod. At first glance it seems a bit more featureful than esper. The tags and relations functionality seem particularly useful for queries. l'll consider using it for the tutorial.

  • pygbag

    python and pygame wasm for everyone ( packager + test server + simulator )

    Project mention: Playable Sandbox Now Available | | 2024-01-11

    Due to pygbag#16, the built-in function does not work correctly in the pygame-wasm environment. I noticed the patch to set_timer was buggy, so I made an improvement to the patch by handling other behaviors mentioned in the docs (e.g. disabling the timer and discarding an old timer for the same event).

  • pyunity

  • DungeonsAndDirectories

    Project mention: Dungeons and Directories, an exploration game in your file explorer | | 2023-12-13

    > In the end, the current version of the game create 41,514 directories, 15,2041 files (mostly empty files with messages in their names), and 45,399 links, which makes it rather unplayable for those unfortunate enough to try running it on a mechanical hard drive.
