Phaser Game Design Workbook

Game Product Management for the Phaser v2.x.x & v3.5+ Gaming Frameworks (6th Edition)

About the Book

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 v3.5+ 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 v3.5+ (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 v3.5+, 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.
