Francesco Sapio obtained his computer science and controls engineering degree from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, with a couple of semesters in advance, graduating summa cum laude; he is currently studying there for a master's of science and engineering degree in artificial intelligence and robotics. He is a Unity 3D and Unreal expert, skilled game designer, and experienced user of major graphics programs. He developed Game@School (Sapienza University of Rome), an educational game for high-school students to learn concepts of physics, and the Sticker Book series (Dataware Games), a cross-platform series of games for kids. In addition, he worked as consultant for the (successfully funded by Kickstarter) game Prosperity - Italy 1434 (Entertainment Game Apps, Inc) and for the open online collaborative ideation system titled Innovoice (Sapienza University of Rome). Moreover, he has been involved in different research projects such as Belief-Driven Pathfinding (Sapienza University of Rome), which is a new technique of path finding in video games that was presented as a paper at the DiGRA-FDG Conference 2016; and perfekt.ID (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), which included developing a recommendation system for games. Francesco is an active writer on the topic of game development. Recently, he authored the book Unity UI Cookbook, Packt Publishing.

But if you are, as I am, into serious game programming and want to learn without useless fatigue how to develop your own game, together with priceless insider tips along the way, then you've come to the right place. I haven't read it all yet (a bit more than halfway through), but I am programming as I proceed, and the tower defense game that is coming out is pretty cool. It won't be my final product, of course, but I am planning on experimenting with variations until I get to my perfect tower defense game!
