Setting up programing environment


OK. To start journey with PyGame we will need Python installed. See for Python 2.5 because 2.6 or 3.0 may not work :(
I will not show you how to install Python (because it is so simple as "Next -> Next -> Next …").

Installing PyGame

To get PyGame visit and get the latest PyGame. In Part Two we will discuss optional PyGame modules that requires some additional libraries but don't worry. I will show you how to install them when I will be talking about them.


Just look at your repos python and pygame are there and waits for you ;)

Now check if PyGame is working

Open python interactive shell and write:

import pygame
print pygame.version

output(may be different number):


Version 1.8.1 is latest when I'm writing this words.
