In honour of International Women's Day, albeit slightly late, AussieChix in Sydney are meeting for a gaming hackfest: participants will be building a small game in the Python programming language. Check out http://www.pyweek.org/ for small games already built in Python.
What about non-programmers and non-Pythonistas? If you'd prefer to work in another language go ahead, we're encouraging Python only because of the toolkits and because many of us know it. If you're a non-programmer, we want you on hand for design and testing. Really, we do. Have a look at the previous PyWeek games for an idea of the need for images and sprites too.
