Same as the title says. When I want to create a new Quickly project, I don't get the pygame template option any longer.

  • ubuntu-application
  • ubuntu-cli
  • ubuntu-flash-game

Those 3 are the templates that are available to use for me right now.

Did they remove it?

Correct, the pygame template was removed in Ubuntu 12.04, in this commit.

IIRC the rationale was that the pygame template was using desktopcouch as a dependency, which is deprecated. My understanding is that it was easier to remove the template rather than reworking it to get rid of desktopcouch, as someone mentioned that pygame would be better implemented embedding it.
