You can now download a free 56 page sampler of my Python programming book, Mission Python. The book shows you how to build a space adventure game using Python and Pygame Zero.
Here are three reasons you should download this sampler now:
- It enables you to download and play the adventure game that you'll build reading the book. The sampler includes the instructions for installing the software, downloading the final game and playing it.
- The PDF contains a complete coding project using Pygame Zero: Chapter 1 shows you how to build a simple spacewalk simulator, and it's included in this free PDF.
- The sampler provides a good overview of the book, including tips for using the book; a chapter-by-chapter guide to what's in it; plus the full table of contents and index.
If you have any concerns about software compatibility, this is also a risk-free way to check the software and the final project will work on your set-up. The book provides instructions for the Raspberry Pi and Windows, and readers have been in touch to say they've got it working on a Mac. I'll share more tips on compatibility and getting everything working in my next blog post, but if you have any queries or concerns, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll do my best to help.
