Rabid Lion Games

A new (old) book

July 1st, 2010

 

Two entries in one day, whoa! 🙂

Over lunch at work I spotted a book on ebay that I’ve been meaning to buy for a while and at less than £4.50 with free postage it was a steal. The book is ‘Building Xna 2.0 games’ by James Silva. I’ve heard great things about this book, and I’m looking forwards to working through it.

I have a lot of XNA books, some of which are good, some of which are terrible, but mostly what I need to learn isn’t how to use Xna, its how to structure and build good games.

James has built some v. successful games so an insight into his way of working should be invaluable.

I also heard about a new iphone games book, which got me itching for the ‘buy’ button on Amazon but I held off for now. With Xna, UDK, and Unity on the go, starting an MSc in computer science in October and a full time job, iphone games may have to hold on for now.

(Incidentally at some point I’ll be starting blogs on UDK and Unity so as to not clutter this one with thoughts not related to the Alta engine. I’ll link to them when I get them going).
