Trying some game development in Python

I wanted to learn some basic game development in OpenGL and Python. Pyglet is very good for this kind of thing. Unfortunately it seems to have a less active community compared to Pygame (but in my opinion Pyglet seems much more Pythonic in its design). My game will not win any awards since it is a Asteroids clone. But it has some other features like:

  • Bullets have recoil and will slightly accelerate the ship rearwards when shooting.
  • Game graphics from a professional artist. (nalishac.com)
  • When I started this list I thought there would be more features but I think this is it.

Infrared experiments to control the television from a website

Where is the remote? Wouldn't it be good if you could switch channels on the television from a website. A wanted to see if it is possible. It didn't.. Note to self; buy more powerful IR transmitters.
