Python 2d Physics Libraries

I’ve been playing with the python-elements but it seems like the project is dead.

The upstream website has gone and the packages has had no updates for some time. I’d like to create a simple demo/game along the lines of some of the mini games you find in WarioWare on the Nintendo Wii. The Python Elements (and box2d) libraries seem to fit the bill but I don’t want to code using something that is going to disappear.

Suggestions for other libraries welcome.

Update: seems the python elements is maintained in debian, my mistake. Still keen to hear of libraries in this area.

  1. How complex is the library? If it’s good, the easiest way may be to try to contact the maintainer and/or the packager, take ownership of the project and keep it alive. Good open source physics libraries are not easy to come by so it’d be a shame to lose a good one. I’d be happy to help if you wanted to do that.

      1. I suppose updating the web site in the package info would also help so that it doesn’t direct you to a URL that doesn’t exist anymore :-) And then making sure that Ubuntu has the latest version.
