More Info
In Advanced Game Design, pioneering game designer and instructor Michael Sellers situates game design practices in a strong theoretical framework of systems thinking, enabling designers to think more deeply and clearly about their work, so they can produce better, more engaging games for any device or platform. Sellers offers a deep unifying framework in which practical game design best practices and proven systems thinking theory reinforce each other, helping game designers understand what they are trying to accomplish and the best ways to achieve it. Drawing on 20+ years of experience designing games, launching game studios, and teaching game design, Sellers explains:
  • What games are, and how systems thinking can help you think about them more clearly
  • How to systematically promote engagement, interactivity, and fun
  • What you can learn from MDA and other game design frameworks
  • How to create gameplay and core loops
  • How to design the entire player experience, and how to build game mechanics that work together to create that experience
  • How to capture your game's "big idea" and Unique Selling Proposition
  • How to establish high-level and background design and translate it into detailed design
  • How to build, playtest, and iterate early prototypes
  • How to build your game design career in a field that keeps changing at breakneck speed

    AN ARCHITECTURAL APPROACH TO LEVEL DESIGN

    AN ARCHITECTURAL APPROACH TO LEVEL DESIGN

    $70.95
    More Info

    Written by a game developer and professor trained in architecture, An Architectural Approach to Level Design is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. It explores the principles of level design through the context and history of architecture.

    Now in its second edition, An Architectural Approach to Level Design presents architectural techniques and theories for you to use in your own work. The author connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with that space. It also addresses industry issues like how to build interesting tutorial levels and how to use computer-generated level design systems without losing the player-focused design of handmade levels. Throughout the text, you will learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory.

    FEATURES

  • Presents case studies that offer insight on modern level design practices, methods, and tools
  • Presents perspectives from industry designers, independent game developers, scientists, psychologists, and academics
  • Explores how historical structures can teach us about good level design
  • Shows how to use space to guide or elicit emotion from players
  • Includes chapter exercises that encourage you to use principles from the chapter in digital prototypes, playtesting sessions, paper mock-ups, and design journals
  • Bringing together topics in game design and architecture, this book helps you create better spaces for your games. Software independent, the book discusses tools and techniques that you can use in crafting your interactive worlds.
