Kye is a clone of the classic puzzle game Kye to Linux (well, to Python and pygtk, so it should run on most platforms where those are available). If you want to know what Kye is about, read here.
Python Kye is written and maintained by me, Colin Phipps. News of new Python Kye releases will be posted here.
Kye is an unusual little puzzle game, with a variety of different types of objects. It takes a little time to figure out all the objects and their normal behaviour; so I have included 6 starter levels to introduce the different objects and different types of level you see them in. Once you have a feel for the game, there are plenty of extra levels to choose from. I have put together a levels page, which picks out some of the easier level sets for people getting started. The levels vary enormously in difficulty, so once you are finding the levels easy, look for a harder set.
See the other pages on this site for more information about the game, and suggestions for levels to play. The site on classicgaming also has lots of good information. I have also started a mailing list as a discussion forum to allow people to discuss levels and level design ideas.
This is a clone of the original Kye, but it is a good one. I have done my best to make it as authentic to the original game as possible (and when I say my best, people who have seen PrBoom will know I take this seriously). It mimics the original, including some of the unusual/buggy things which occur in the original game. It should be compatible with all levels for v1.0 and v2.0 of the original Windows version of Kye. Let me know if you find a level which seem not to work right (*).
