Elements of Game Design (MIT Press)
Friday, 18 September 2020

This textbook by well-known game designer Robert Zubek introduces the basics of game design, covering tools and techniques used by practitioners in commercial game production. It presents a model for analyzing game design in terms of three interconnected levels—mechanics and systems, gameplay, and player experience. The book explains how novice game designers can use these three levels as a framework to guide their design process. It emphasizes models and vocabulary used in industry practice and focuses on the design of games as dynamic systems of gameplay.
