A Book Recommendation about Game Feel

First let me say I have nothing to do with this book. It's just something I feel strongly about and thought I'd share.

The book just came out this month and is called "Game Feel: A Game Designer's Guide to Virtual Sensation" by Steve Swink.

I'll be upfront and say I have not read this book yet, it just arrived from Amazon today. However, it is based on and expands upon my favorite online article about game development of all time . And of course it's by the same author.

Here is the article:


Read it first and if you like it as much as I did you will quickly get the expanded book version. The insight in this article (and I'm sure in the book) is such that you will certainly learn something about the finer details of game feel. I think the content of the article and book are especially relevant to small web games.

Let me know what you think...
