Book Description

Most of the game development enthusiasts are ‘tinkerers’—people who are good at programming and know a lot about programming methods; however, they may have never written a complete game program, but would like to know how to create a program. Transitioning from programming to game development can often be difficult, however, Slick2D helps developers to create amazing games without having to deal with low level programming, and it simplifies many of the daunting tasks, such as rendering and window creation.

This practical guide will help you to understand the different components of Slick2D. Throughout the course of this book, you will develop different components, and by the end of the book you will combine all of these components to assemble a complete game.

Enabling you to add life to your games, this book will focus on the Slick2D game library. Starting with the installation and configuration of a game library, you will then move onto understanding the structure of a game. Throughout the book, you will be involved in developing different sections of a single game, which will help you to gain hands- on experience in understanding the Slick Workflow. Following on from this, you will be shown how to add additional features to your game such as adding input and music, while taking a detailed look at the render method.
