Awesome 3D Game Development: No Programming Required (Game Development)by Clayton E II Crooks
Synopses & Reviews
Awesome 3D Game Development: No Programming Required teaches aspiring game developers how to create their own 3D computer games without programming skills, and provides an in-depth understanding of how the game design process works, from writing the story to creating the graphics. Using hands-on tutorials and complete game creation engines, readers learn to make and modify their own interactive 3D computer games, add music and sound effects, and model and texture objects and levels. The book uses development tools such as Reality Factory, PIE 3D, and 3D Game Maker, all of which are included on the companion CD-ROM, along with all of the graphics and source code. By the end of the book, aspiring developers will have created several complete 3D games, including a space war game, a"tomb raider" style game, and a race car game. This is a great way to learn the fundamentals of game design and game creation without programming skills!
