Get Inside The Creative Mind

 

INSIDE GAME DESIGN

by  Iain Simons

 

•    Ever wanted to get inside the mind of a videogame designer? Iain Simons does just that by not only looking at the process of making a game, but also exploring how it feels to make one.

•    Through in-depth interviews with industry legends such as Lorne Lanning and new players in the field like Relentless and Media Molecule, the author delves beneath the surface of the games themselves to discuss the process, context, method and motivation behind videogame design.

•    The book features concept and process sketches, images from the finished games and offers a rare chance to see the faces behind the games and the environments in which they are made.

•    Featured designers include: Frontier Developments (Thrillville, The Outsider), Intoversion (Defcon) Harmonix (Guitar Hero) and Lorne Lanning (Oddworld).
