Python is a programming language used throughout the world. People like Python because of its ease of use and its power. We will use Python to create games that you can actually play and enjoy!
PyGame is the name of the package that we will be using to make our games! A package is a collection of files that have already been created for us that we can use to make our projects easier and faster. This package will allow us to create graphics like sprites and backgrounds and even allow us to program motion! The package lets us do this much quicker than if we were to create all the code by ourselves!
