Large Print Edition. This is a different book format from previous edition for Phaser JS Gaming Development -- unlike anything you have seen.  It is now a part of the Game Studio Start-up Series leading you into building a secondary source of income from game development and production. As I create a generic game in both Phaser.js v2.x.x and v3.16+ frameworks, you develop your own game by simply following and translating my easy concepts into your own game design. When you complete this workbook, unlike other game development books, you will have your own game, not a carbon-copy of the author's.

This workbook is divided in several parts of bundled chapters! For example, if you have never created an online game in HTML5 and JavaScript, you might like to read the Introduction and Part I (Chapters 1 to 7 ), while a seasoned game developer might start with Part II, III, Iv and V (chapters 8 through 14) and scan all the Appendices. If you're a seasoned Business Consultant or Product/Project Manager, I'm certain you'll be interested in the upcoming trends in the gaming industry (Part V "IoT"). The workbook's appendices are a resource dictionary of available books, and FREE open-source assets. Each chapter guides you in my decisions & design processes of "Extreme Programming" project management; you will discover why I chose various business and software outcomes -- all of this, in well-commented source code files in both versions v2.x.x and v3.16+ (external to the book's content and found in your LeanPub Library).

 In summary, you'll complete your own exciting game, in your selected genre, using either free open-source Phaser JavaScript Frameworks v2.x.x or v3.16+, and other JavaScript tools by following this step-by-step product management workbook. The power of Phaser JavaScript Frameworks are exposed for your product development. Bonus Content available conveniently in your LeanPub Library or from this book's website.

This large print workbook is the 6th edition - a hands-on tutorial guide for Game Prototype creations using Micro-services and component object programming with an emphasis on Phaser v2.x.x, CE, v3.16+ and any JavaScript Gaming Frameworks. 

Phaser Game Prototyping is a hands-on guide for making browser games using Phaser's official, CE (community edition) JavaScript Game Frameworks. Master the important skills and techniques you need for Phaser using our unique component object programming. This book delves into many of the great classic game mechanisms and design mechanics techniques. All written in a fun and friendly style with completed projects and open-ended exercises that encourage you to build your own game projects. You'll also download supporting tools to classify the book’s snippets and add your own modification.

 

  • Part I demonstrates basic game mechanisms and components from the Phaser JS Game Framework using the OLOO paradigm. It starts by showing you how you to build game mechanisms in any Phaser version! By the end of Part I, you’ll have a complete, fully-functional Game Prototype , reusable components, and the supporting tools to manage further game production. You’ll have a game character’s visual and its meta descriptions. Learn to control your avatar through either the keyboard, mouse, or touch-screen interfaces. Develop game environments, create game scene migrations and then learn how to use collision detection within a standard game loops. Build dynamic menu response system,and an interactive game world. 
  • Part II demonstrates how to connect all your new game prototypes and components into various game mechanics using the raw power of native JavaScript OLOO. What I show you, will open the pathway to building a game within a month or even 7-days! This is not hipe; I eat my own dog food and have pushed game prototypes out for final artwork within 7 days. You’ll learn to make RPG maze games, code 6 different combat systems, develop heads-up displays (HUD) that are both internal to and outside of the Phaser canvas, apply 6 different artificial intelligence systems, create tiled-maps with the Phaser features, and other fast-paced actions that cover all the popular game perspective of 2D and 2.5D gaming. I'll reveal what I'm doing with Phaser 3D and WebXR games too. You’ll discover how to develop games and multi-level isometric scenes using existing features in Phaser v3.13+. All these techniques -- and supporting source code -- are explained in an easy-to-understand manner for game designers to gain new skills or simply update your skills from Phaser v2.x.x.

You’ll find detailed working examples on the book's website (with dozens of illustrations and many concepts) you can freely apply to your own gaming projects. All the source code comments enhance the book’s explanation.

Phaser III Game Starter Kit Collection (6th Edition) is a hands-on guide for making browser games using Phaser version 3.16+ Gaming Frameworks. You may also purchase these chapters individually which includes both v2.x.x and v3.16+. This collection delves into 16+ greatest classical and popular game mechanics with 19 sub-genres (for a total of 35!).

You’ll also download supporting tools to classify the book’s snippets and add your own modification. Phaser Game Starter Kit Collection (a sister volume to this one exclusively for Phaser v2.x.x) is similar to this book's Part II.

 

Phaser III Game Starter Kit Collection contains several sections. It starts with

  • Part I is an Introduction into the Game Design System™, game perspective, modes, genres, workstation set-up, an introduction to "headless game design", and generation tools.
  • Part II demonstrates basic game mechanics and mechanisms using Phaser JavaScript Gaming Framework. Each chapter is a separate game mechanic for Phaser III in this volume! This is a reference book; simply turn to the chapter of the game you'd like to create. In a matter of hours, you will have a working game prototype for that game mechanics using the Game Design System™ -- fully explained in the Phaser III Game Design workbook (new 6th edition). You'll then add your own artwork and any additional game features; then over the next few days, you'll have your own completed game ready to deploy in the "apps" stores. You might consider this a joint effort: I am your game programmer and you are the game designer, artist, and marketer.
  • Part III is a massive collection of 59+ Flash ActionScript games just waiting for you to transpile from ActionScript 2/3 into Phaser III. There's also several chapters on converting older Phaser v2.x.x into the new Phaser III API!

You’ll find detailed working examples, with dozens of illustrations and many concepts you can freely apply to your own gaming projects. All the source code annotations are enhanced through the book’s explanation. 

If you prefer, you can buy individual chapters - sold separately on LeanPub.com or Amazon.com
