Learn the things you need for a complete game, such as translations and tutorials, and improve the things you've already written to raise their standard to that of a professional level. This is a practical guide covering every discipline: art, music, writing, and code.

Polished Game Development acts as a comprehensive checklist of everything your game should, and should not, do, in order to be as good as it possibly can. It is more than just a book on theoretical game design principles.
The book also features a complete game, Space Bounce, which is built in stages throughout the book, to explain in practical terms the ideas expressed.
