By Robin Koman on May 5, 2009
Format: Paperback
It's been a pleasure reading Beyond Game Design. I've found this text to be the rare successful combination of new information and old information explored in new ways. Each chapter feels complete in and of itself, with ideas from previous sections seamlessly supporting the next. For those working as designers or developers, or those who hope to work in design someday, this is a text worth reading.
