About the Book
I’m a gamer. I’ve been a gamer since before I was a programmer. And yet I’ve never tried to build a game…until now. A few weeks ago, a coworker sketched a simple, beautiful platform game. The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to build it.
Knowing where to begin is always hard. Many books and tutorials about making games are often written in Java, C++ or some other language you haven’t learned yet. So the complexity of making games is increased with the need to learn new languages.
