Game Development and Design

New!

Unreal Game Development Ashish Amresh and Alex Okita Using Unreal Engine 3, the authors of this classroom-tested textbook teach aspiring game makers the fundamentals of designing a computer game. The only prerequisite is a basic working knowledge of computers and a desire to build an original game. To get the most out of the material, the authors recommend that students work through the book together as a team and with time limits, mimicking the key elements of realworld commercial game development. The book mirrors the curriculum used at CampGame, a six week summer program organized for high school students at New York University and Arizona State University that has been running successfully for over five years. Students enter with no prior knowledge of game making; through the course of six intensive weeks, they finish as teams of budding game developers who have already completed fully functional games with their own designs, code, and art.

Features • Teaches the fundamentals of designing a computer game • Requires only a basic understanding of computers • Presents significant aspects of real-world gaming development • Shows students how to create designs, code, and graphics

Game Development and Design

Level Design Concept, Theory, & Practice Rudolf Kremers “This is not just another book that deals with the discipline of level design. … This book covers relevant concepts and theories behind designing levels. Instruction in building levels is replaced by fascinating examinations behind the reasons why.” —A. Chen, CHOICE, June 2010

“A book on level design comprehensive and relevant enough that I can recommend it to professional colleagues and students alike. … Kremers leaves no stone unturned, touching upon the relationship between level design and the game’s lighting, audio, story, artificial intelligence, mechanics, puzzles … It’s a truly grand task to take in the domain of ‘level design’ and try to wrap it up into a book of manageable length. Kremers has succeeded in doing so, unafraid to mix in the relevant considerations of game design, art, and psychology where applicable.” —Chris DeLeon, February 2010

Not tied to any particular technology or genre, this book is the first to use a conceptual and theoretical foundation to build a set of practical tools and techniques for level design. It covers many concepts universal to level design, including interactivity, world building, immersion, sensory perception, and pace. The author shows how to apply these concepts in practical ways using many examples from real games.

Contents Introduction to Level Design Game Design vs. Level Design Teaching Mechanisms Level Design Goals and Hierarchies Level Design Structure and Methodology Single-Player vs. Multiplayer Considerations Toward a Shared Grammer for Level Emotional Feedback Systems Reward Systems Immersion Negative Emotions Game Environments Visual Experiences Audio Design Game Stories Story and Narrative Designing Gameplay World Building Puzzles Artificial Intelligence Challenge Final Thoughts Considering the Future For more complete contents, visit www.crctextbooks.com
