Book Description

This guide will teach you everything you need to know to start developing your own game, from the design process, to the creation, and in-depth development features of GameSalad.

You will start by designing your game and importing artwork, and quickly move to setting up in GameSalad. Once you set up your menu and controls, you will create players and make them attack all they find while detecting collisions. Of course, it's important to keep track of their health, ammo, and other vitals, so you will learn that next! To spice things up further, we will add enemies, teach them how to behave (or not), and create minimaps and other objectives to keep your players hooked.

We will round off with some important details about monetization, cross-platform deployment, and other pearls of wisdom to help you on your own journey. Phew!

What You Will Learn

  • Design your game from the initial concept to paper to screen
  • Set up GameSalad on your system and get started with your first project from scratch
  • Understand and implement logo animation and preprogrammed introduction animations
  • Create gameplay mechanics such as health system, lives, scoring, power ups, ammo, inventory, GUI, and more!
  • Use GameSalad's new, extremely powerful tables system to create RPG-style conversations and inventory systems
  • Create enemies and level objectives, along with saving player progress
  • Polish your game and get some useful input about the challenges of game development
