Want to control your CircuitPython game with your PyGamer's Joystick? Click buttons on the display using the buttons on your PyGamer/PyBadge?

We've created a Cursor module for CircuitPython. This module provides an interactive mouse cursor to add to your game or interface.

In this guide, you'll learn how to add a cursor to your CircuitPython device's display and control it with your PyBadge or PyGamer.

Then, we added cursor support to the Python Choose your Own Adventure gaming framework (PYOA) so you can play choose-your-own-adventure games on your PyBadge/PyGamer.
