Myrmidon - Python 2D game framework

Myrmidon is a framework for Python that aims to provide rapid development of 2D games.

Using a simple and easy to use API, Myrmidon allows developers to create interactive games and was designed to be perfectly suited for prototypes, proof-of-concepts and game jams.

Myrmidon's bottom-line is that the developer should only be concerned about behaviour of game objects and how the user interacts with them. Any low-level graphics, window or input handling should be the sole responsibility of Myrmidon. Hiding that as much as possible and allowing you to get on writing your game.


Requirements: PyGame 1.9.x, PyOpenGL 3.x

Both Python 2.6> and 3.x are supported
