GAME DESIGN DEEP DIVE: FREE-TO-PLAY

Joshua Bycer



 

Game Design Deep Dive: Free-to-Play (F2P) continues the series’ focus on examining genres with a look at the history and methodology behind free-to-play and mobile games. The genre is one of the most lucrative and controversial in the industry. Josh Bycer lays out not only the potential and pitfalls of this design but also explores the ethics behind good and bad monetization.


This book offers:

  • A comprehensive look at the practices behind the most popular free-to-play and mobile games

  • A detailed talk about the ethics of F2P, and one of the few honest looks at it from both sides of the argument

  • A perfect read for designers, students, or people wanting to educate themselves about the practices of the genre
