The next book in the "! saga" is out and I call it "Swipe This! The Guide To Great Touchscreen Game Design" by Scott Rogers. It looks like this:
"Swipe This!" is all about designing great games for anything with a touch screen. It contains everything you liked about "Level Up!" - tons of first-hand practical game design knowledge, useful advice and hundreds of goofy original illustrations by yours truly. This time we even have interviews with noted and up-and-coming game developers and analyses of successful touchscreen games so you can learn from their success. "Swipe This!" is available everywhere and in every format books are sold: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kindle, etc.
Now, I'm sure you're asking yourself "This is fantastic news Scott but how can I help?" By doing the FOUR R's:
