Update on New Books!

Posted by Dr. Burton on October 9, 2016 in Corona, Education, Game Development, Lumberyard |

We have been contacted by a number of people asking about the new titles announced last spring.  Here is the official update as of October 1:

Isometric Game Development with Corona SDK is making steady progress and is approximately 30% complete as of Oct. 1.  We are using Tiled map generator if you are curious as to the tools.

 

Game Development with Amazon Lumberyard is over 50% complete as of Oct. 1.  Since we started writing this textbook, Lumberyard has come a long ways and we are very excited to be working on this project.  This will be the first of a series of textbooks on Lumberyard, each progressively more complex.  We currently have 4 books planned and in development in the series.  The first book introduces the developer to 3D modeling with Blender, texturing with GIMP, and creating a game with these objects using Lumberyard.

 

Will there be an early release? Once we have over 60% complete, we will consider releasing a title at the discounted early-release price.  There are many factors that contribute to the early release of a book, the most important being at what point is the  book is usable/educational.  Watch this space and our Facebook page for more information.
