  2. Anonymous Says:

    is that running on IronPython in the Silverlight DLR?

  3. philhassey Says:

    Nope. Just good ol’ python-2.5.2 … Look a bit closer and maybe you can puzzle it out 🙂

    i’m definitely interested in the right answer. the screenshot is a bit small, here’s a guess, though:
    pygame renders a frame, which gets published via local webserver and the browser pulls it.
    ok, so how is it working for real?
    ps: btw, does anyone know how to run python inside browser? (ironmonkey, anyone?)

    looks like it’s flash based –

    PyGame on Flash sprint – of us are going to work on getting pygame working in flash. Imagine being able to play pygame games in any browser anywhere! I’m quite excited about this one so if you’re staying for the sprints, join us! Lucio Torre is leading this sprint.

    too bad it’s not the full python interpreter

    would be nice to be able to access the dom structure via python

    Is this running on the Instant Action platform from GarageGames?

    Ycros got it 🙂 Today was the first time I got it working in the browser. I’ve got most of the update to the game done. The rest is working on polishing the integration with IA. No official release date yet, but things are starting to come together!

    So techwise – no flash, no weird publishing of data. It’s hooked right into the browser 🙂

    That is so awesome… At first I thought it might be something like the pypy flex generator, but that looks really awesome. Looking forward to a release soon! 🙂
