Check out Pyglet!

Pyglet is a cross-platform windowing and multimedia library for Python. If you've been using pygame all your life (like me), you need check it out.

Pyglet uses OpenGL. It makes blitting a 2D image as simple as
The API is exceptionally clean, IMO, and is accompanied by a programming guide and an API reference.

It also allows you to code for multi-head setups, and provides positional audio via OpenAL. Awesome! And best of all... there is no building required! It's 100% Pure Python.

Pyglet is still in alpha phase, so don't expect everything to work perfectly. Having said that... it works well enough for me. I'm converted.

Thanks for pointing this out!

I'm really impressed with the programming guide. An alpha release that manages to provide kick ass documention? Well done.

I've wanted to write a MAME front-end in Python and this looks very promising.
