    DescriptionAnyone can master the fundamentals of game design - no technological expertise is necessary. The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses shows that the same basic principles of psychology that work for board games, card games and athletic games also are the keys to making top-quality videogames. Good game design happens when you view your game from many different perspectives, or lenses. While touring through the unusual territory that is game design, this book gives the reader one hundred of these lenses - one hundred sets of insightful questions to ask yourself that will help make your game better. These lenses are gathered from fields as diverse as psychology, architecture, music, visual design, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, writing, puzzle design, and anthropology. Anyone who reads this book will be inspired to become a better game designer - and will understand how to do it.

  • This book is insightful for any type of designer! :)5

    Mikael Lindberg I can't stress, nor express fully how much this book has influenced my thinking and approach on game design. Through the houndred lenses Jesse Schell presents in his book, you get to explore several of his own experiences in the real world, both related to creating games and not (The latter also being related!)

    I reccommend this book highly to any aspiring game designer! by Mikael Lindberg
