In his video series, Game Design: The Art and Science of Making Games, Jason DeGroot talks about the fundamentals of game design.
He says that game design is like the art and science of making something.
He explains that game designers work with a toolkit of concepts, tools, and rules.
He talks about how to apply those tools to the game, but also the tools themselves.
There’s no perfect game, DeGroots says, and there’s no right way to make a game.
Game design is a process.
DeGroseys video series also talks about what games look like, the most important tools in game design and how to play a game to its best advantage.
De Groot’s series is now available on YouTube and is available to watch for free on the The Washington Post website.
