    LD20X6: Initialisms - whitelynx - Game Jam Entry

    This is a basic space shoot-em-up, similar in concept to Tyrian. There's a ton of ideas I never got around to actually adding to the game, but that will definitely happen post-compo. For now, it runs decently, and should be playable on most systems.

    Prerequisites
    -------------
    You'll need to install Python, followed by PyGame.

    [Python]: http://www.python.org/
    [PyGame]: http://pygame.org/

    ### Windows
    On Windows, you'll specifically need Python version 2.6, and the PyGame installer for Python 2.6, since PyGame doesn't have a 2.7-compatible installer.

    [Python version 2.6]: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.6/
    [PyGame installer]: http://pygame.org/download.shtml

    ### Mac OS X
    I don't have any specific instructions for this since I don't have a Mac, but my best guess is you just need the appropriate PyGame installer, since Mac OS X comes with Python.

    ### Other Systems
    Most Linux distros come with Python pre-installed. Most distros also have packages for PyGame, but if you can't find a package for it, use `easy_install`:

    easy_install pygame

    Having a hard time figuring out to make this work... any chance of a Windows executable?

    I'll take a stab at a Windows executable tomorrow... since I almost never run Windows, it didn't really cross my mind. In the meantime, provided you've installed Python and PyGame, you should be able to just double-click on ld20.py. I'll update instructions on http://projects.g33xnexus.com/ld20x6/wiki/README/ as well once I've made an executable.

    So... better late than never, I suppose... I finally created an installer for Windows. It can be found at http://projects.g33xnexus.com/media/uploads/ld20x6-0.1.exe
