Game Designer Randy Smith Likes My Game Design Secrets
Acclaimed game designer Randy Smith of iOS studio Tiger Style has a very gratifying write-up of my new book, Game Design Secrets, which I love so much, I have to quote here:
"With lots of useful material like excerpted design docs, anecdotes, workflows, and copious interviews with numerous experienced developers, it’s a worthwhile read for anyone getting into the business." - Randy Smith, lead designer, Waking Mars, Spider, the Thief trilogy
As it happens, Tiger Style's award-winning design approach is featured in a chapter of the book, but after sending him the whole thing to read, it's an honor that Randy liked it all well enough to recommend it. I also interviewed him about Waking Mars here on this blog, and started writing about games with the groundbreaking Thief: The Dark Project, on which he was a lead designer.
