Praise

“This is the introduction to game design we’ve been waiting for. Through systems, games train our thumbs, tickle our curiosity, and tell stories in which our choices matter — and Elements of Game Design offers the best introduction I’ve seen to systemsoriented game design.”
– Noah WardripFruin, Professor of Computational Media, University of California, Santa Cruz; author of How PacMan Eats

Elements of Game Design provides a nuanced take on subjects such as gameplay mechanics, player psychology, and narrative structures — a wonderful survey of theoretical and practical thinking on how to design games.”
– Eric Zimmerman, Arts Professor, NYU Game Center; coauthor of Rules of Play
