Review

A ‘must’ for any serious game programmer or designer!
Midwest Book Review, December 2011

this work is unique in its focus. … this book dives into the tables, charts, and numbers behind game mechanics that power game play. Each chapter ends with exercises that reinforce the material being covered and invites the reader to look outside video games for insight and inspiration. For students and professionals alike, this book can be a helpful reference and design toolbox. … Highly recommended.
—A. Chen, CHOICE, October 2011
