How to develop game for GameSH

There are only two build-in games in GameShell, CaveStory && FreeDoom.
If I want to develop my own , how can I begin to ?

I think Pygame is the best choice

LÖVE is also an option.

If you happen to go with Lua/LÖVE, there’s a neat tutorial for creating the game BYTEPATH in LÖVE. You can then use what you learned from that to make other games.

There’s also some excellent videos from a Harvard gameDev course mainly in Lua/LÖVE (and a little with C#/Unity, so not relevant for GameSH) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP-PYULVx0k&list=PLhQjrBD2T383Vx9-4vJYFsJbvZ_D17Qzh

Thanks for including the link. I had it copied and everything, but I forgot to paste it. This is why I shouldn’t try and post here first thing in the morning.

There’s also this collection of tutorials:

Out of this and the other two LÖVE tutorials I think this is definitely the most straightforward to start with.
