A handy guide for anyone interested in game design,
This review is from: Game Development Essentials: Gameplay Mechanics (Paperback)
Everyone thinks they have a great idea for a game but few realise that it's a lot more complicated than that. If you're interested in being a game designer then this book explains the sort of complexity and detail required by game design documents. It helps you to think about gameplay mechanics and how to make games fun! Although the design of the pages is a bit busy at times, there's a lot of good information and the references to games are pretty up to date. Overall a good manual for anyone interested in game design which covers a lot of detail but doesn't get too academic on you.
