I made a couple 3D engines without OpenGL a while ago. Before I knew about OpenGL, I wanted textured polygons too, and couldn't figure out how, short of a manual per-pixel interpolation.

very cool!

With pygame 1.9 you can render textured polygons.

So you should be able to render textured obj files too :)
