This is a simple post with instructions on "How To Learn, And, Get Into Python & Game Development", please do what it says, and MSG me if you have any problems/questions.

1. Getting Python
Get Python 3.2.3 here: http://python.org/download/
Windows 32 Bit = Python 3.2.3 Windows x86 MSI Installer
Windows 64 Bit = Python 3.2.3 Windows X86-64 MSI Installer
For Mac and Linux, just read the page, http://python.org/download/

2. Getting Started On Learning
Skip Chapter one, and don't go paste chapter 16 here: http://inventwithpyt...OCGwP_book1.pdf (Remember to use Python IDLE)
--
3. Making A Game
Make a text game to test your abilities, here is a video for game development to help you out.

4. Joining A Team
Email a development team about joining. Email WinTheWorldProductions@gmail.com about joining them. (This is just a suggestion, feel free to join another Development team.)

5. Other Things
ASCii Artist Article, and Some Tips that you could use: http://pastebin.com/cQtL9btb
I recommend you learn about Socket Servers.

6. Going further with your Python knowledge.
Remember to practice by making applications and games, and Google is a useful tool to learn more. I recommend TheNewBoston Tutorials, but you can use other things also, because of course, it doesn't cover everything. Also, start here: http://thenewboston....at=36&number=32
