have books in trade paperback, PDF, PalmPIlot, and Microsoft Reader editions.
book assumes that you can already solve the Rubikís cube. Maybe youíve
only solved it once and you figure thatís enough of an accomplishment.
Maybe youíre an accomplished solver who races others to see how fast you
can solve it. Maybe youíre like me and youíre not too fast, are kind of
bored, and you need new challenges. If you are any of these people, you
should find this book enjoyable. You will be amused and challenged by
easy to seemingly impossible patterns that you can recreate on your
cube. Both 3x3 and 4x4 cube puzzles are included, and unique full-color
photographs make the book a true collectorís item.
Perspectives in Game Design delivers interviews with the peers of the
game design community, the designers and publishers whose work defines
excellence in game design. From Costikyan to Nestel, from Besinque to
Garfield to Seyfarth, Contemporary Perspectives in Game Design presents
observations and insights from the men and women who design contemporary
games. Over 100 Discussion Problems based on the interviews support an
academic course, leading students to deeper insights into the nature of
the design, publishing, and use of modern board games.
centuries, great artists have had a secret.
If you paint, donít just study painting.
Great painters study every medium: painting, ceramics,
sculpture, glassblowing... because the perspectives from every other medium
make them better painters.
But you say: Iím a computer game designer!
Thatís right. Just as great painters study textiles, great
computer game designers study other sorts of games. Strategy games. War
games. Miniatures. Role playing games. If you donít believe us, ask
yourself: Who designed Quake and Doom, and what did he design first?
In the words of Greg Costikyan: Donít be a vidiot! If your
sole experience of games derives from the arcade, the console, and the home
PC...You will see only what exists in the here and now...Your palette of
techniques, your grasp of the possible, will be limited.
