New Game on New Language

HI everybody, its Murat Aydin, the programmer of the game.
As you see it is a usual casual game but the important thing is that wrote in new language for me, Python.

I am a web-based game programmer but when i saw the subject of the Global Game Jam, i think a web-based game would not be funny.

So i decided to start to learn for a new language.
After my research, 3 hours past so i decided on Python.

I read documentations, look for games written on Python...
After my 7 hours hard work, i started to write the with my team member, Utku, graphicer.

For a new language, we are able to write a game.
Our game is not super a game but it is hard writing a game if you try to write it in 48 hours - ( 3 hours a programming language research) - (2 hours sleep) = 43 hours

Have fun...
