THE ABC OF VIDEO GAMES: HOW VIDEO GAMES ARE MADE

Roberto Genovesi, Giampiero Rossi (Foreword)



 

Video games are the youngest and most interactive frontier of entertainment and are now invading the languages ​​and spaces of all other media: from cinema to comics, from mobile phones to cartoons, the Internet and television.


To make video games, therefore, a specific competence is necessary but above all an endless imagination and an omnivorous knowledge of all the most up-to-date products in circulation.


This book is a first manual on "how" to make video games and on the figure of the game designer, the professional who conceives, designs and creates the alternative universe, the narration and the rules of a video game. After a quick examination of the industry, professions and the market, the text analyzes the path that leads to the creation of a game with dozens of examples and images.


From the idea to the writing of the book, from the graphics to the enhancement of the engine and the user interface, from the construction of the characters to that of the stories, the author keeps two essential elements at the center of the creative process: the speed & surround style of the narration and the player with his emotions and his fantasy. Whether it's a product to play "solo" or a team game, an online role-playing game, a sophisticated adventure game or the wildest shooter just released on the market.
