PyWeek — April 2009 — Get off my lawn — entries
To play the games listed here, you may need to install Python (typically 2.5+). PyGame, pyglet or PyOpenGL. See the game's README file for specific requirements. Windows or OS X users downloading the versions of games specific to them shouldn't need to install anything.
|Team HULK (hulk)|
An ubercool micro racing game.
— Re-upload of lite version with readme file - needs a less beafy computer to run than normal
version; requires panda 3D.
kettling-0.1.tar.gz — Exactly the same as kettling.tar.gz, just with the addition of a readme.txt file I forgot. Still requires Panda 3D to run - windows users will be better off with the installer. (11.34 Mbytes on 2009/05/03)
(Note - the above files (If viewing this on the list of all games.) are the code for the full version - you will need a computer with panda 3D installed to use this. On the download page there are Windows installers for convenience. The lite version is for lower spec. computers as the full version is very demanding.)
A protest simulation - you control the police in a simple (But deceptively tricky) RTS and kettle some protesters. Kettling is a term that reached prominence recently when used by the police at the G20 demonstrations in London - it refers to trapping a group of protesters in an area and not letting them leave, for any reason. The only way to leave early is to suffer a medical emergency, or suffer a medical emergency because you can't leave in the first place to get medicine.

The local animal control just lost their control of their cats. The cats on everyone's lawn. Use your lawnmower to catch those cats and chain these cats to your mower like a snake.

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to finish my entry, so I wrote this little game on the last day (second time in a row this happens). At least I get to judge other games. :)
Maybe next time I'll do something that's at the same time decent and not too big. Sorry for those expecting to play my game.
Looking forward to playing your games!

|LAWN: Terror From The Green (lawn-tftg)|
— PNG color space fixed
A lighthearted tactical stealth game for the theme "Get off my lawn!", LAWN:TFTG puts you in control of a group of young children on a mission to rescue their football.
Tips to players:
Tip 1: Click on stars on the map to start missions.
Tip 2: If you only have 1 non-panicked kid left, restart the mission by pressing SHIFT-R. There's no penalty for retrying.
Tip 3: Distraction is key. The elderly turn towards sources of sound. Even if they heard something, another sound can divert their attention again.
Tip 4: Kids can move off the lawn while others can't.

Hurray it's pyweek again. This is my fourth pyweek and like all other pyweeks before i'm sure, that it's going to be a lot of fun. The last pyweek my motivation lacked a little bit because, the content creation was far to ambitious for a solo entry, so this time i concentrate on the game mechanics and not so much on gfx and sfx. To all of you: Have a nice pyweek!
|White Noise (WhiteNoise)|
— Final version - all platforms
This entry is going to be ambitious. Unlike the last attempt, hopefully this keeps my interest and results in some sweetness.
The game is going to be a top-down shooter. Gameplay will be simplistic, but fun. Hopefully the production value is pretty good, though.
|Universe Factory 8 (unifac8)|
— Final version
Game title: Panspermia.
You control the destiny of a race of plant-like creatures on a faraway world. As they reach the verge of self-awareness, they realize that their planet is dying and they must spread their vines throughout the cosmos to survive.
Or something like that.

|Lawn of the Dead [by Team zahmeKatzen] (zK-5)|
— Final submission. Really.
You are Sir Grumpy McGrumpington, veteran of the Sheep Wars, and you just want to peacefully enjoy your retirement on your very own stone cottage near a village in Scottland. You are very proud of your superb lawn - you invested a lot of time into it and nobody else in Northern Scottland owns a better one. Maybe not even on the whole British Isles.
But sadly, your plans on peaceful retirement are futile. Something bad happened - Media reports an infection or something else - and everyone seems to turn into a flesh eating half dead half undead beast. You could care less, but just some moments ago those filthy monsters trespassed your lot and are now stomping and scuffling on your precious lawn!
So be it! Grab your old and trustworthy Winchester shotgun and show these undead rowdies what you think of their behaviour!

Rose the Red Ninja was walking out in the grassy fields near her home in Japan, when a Blue Ninja appeared!
He laughed, and told Rose that she was on Lord Skygem's lawn, and that he wanted her off of it... At all costs!
Rose must fight her way through the Blue Ninja forces and finally defeat Lord Skygem, so that she can bring glory to her master, Lord Crimson!
Notes that weren't in the README:
Press E to pause
Press R to restart the level
(Note:You'll have to sit through the load screen again :-()
Press Q to quit
(Closing the window also works)
Done! Hope You Enjoy It!
Level One: Not much to say about it, mostly trying to get the hang of making levels. Came out okay, thought, so I kept it.
Level Two: Big vertical climb with enemies above. Also, lots of enemies at the end.
Level Three: You are immediately dropped in front of a large group of enemies, and must escape. Or fight them, if you're brave/crazy
And Then...: You have won the game! Bonzai!
Here's to never giving up hope! ^o^

NOTE: Rated T for Teen (swearing, descriptions of violence)
We took the theme "Get Off My Lawn" and tried to dig deep into the mentality of the kind of person that would say such a thing - what is "Get off my lawn!" really about? It's about someone who is unhappy with his life and is taking it out on others. It's about trying to control that little rectangle you feel ownership over, amid forces that are ultimately beyond your control. It's about dissatisfaction. It's about aging. It's about ennui.
We found that it was pretty hard to make a game about ennui. But we consider it a success.

Objective: protect your family from the zombies for as long as you can. Controls
You can fight the zombies with your bare hands but when doing so you will receive damage from their attacks so it's best to use the shotgun which will spawn somewhere in the house at the begining of the game for you to pick up.Life and ammo
From time to time medkits and food will spawn in the house as well as ammo for your shotgun. You can send a member of your family to pick up life if they are damaged or you can pick them yourself. If you send a relative to pick ammo, you will need to touch him/her in order to get it.Tips
You can move your family by clicking on them and setting a destination, you will find that some areas are strategically better than others. Keep in mind that they will panic if you move too far from them.
It's a good idea to try to pick up as much ammo as you can all the time... you will need it!
The game ends if you die or if all the members of your family die.
That's it folks. Enjoy and let us know how much time you lasted!
