Is pygame python 3 development dead or something? The only posts I can find on it here are from 2013 which no longer works as the package is gone from AUR, and from 2011 saying pygame wasn't ready for python 3 (3 years, really?)
This is strange to me because Invent with python and pygame are still considered the best tutorial and tool to learn python with and do stuff with.
I see in the FAQ that 1.9.2 supports python3, but our packagae is still 1.9.1.
Anyone have any more information? Am I missing something really obvious that will let me code pygame in python3?

Where do you see version 1.9.1? You mean the "python2-pygame" package? That's irrelevant because that packages only for Python 2.
Does "python-pygame-hg" (it's for Python 3) not work anymore? It's not flagged out of date... That's the package you would install to use PyGame in Python 3.

"python-pygame-hg" does not exist. What can I do?
It looks like the "python-pygame-hg" package didn't make it in the recent AUR transition. You should be able to use the AUR git archives to get the old package and build it yourself.
...As for me, I've given up on Python game development. It just never "clicked" for me. So, back to C and Allegro / SDL I go.
Thank you bro.
