If you know nothing about game development, you're basically me before I started working on my first game, DARQ. This book is for beginners and assumes no knowledge of game development on the listener's part.
As a first-time developer with no prior experience in coding, modeling, texturing, animation, game design, etc., I managed to launch DARQ to both commercial success and critical acclaim. With zero dollars spent on marketing, it was featured in major media outlets, such as IGN, Kotaku, PC Gamer, GameSpot, Forbes, and hundreds of others. DARQ won numerous awards, such as The Best Game of the MIX/PAX, and received a user rating of nine out of 10. DARQ was in the top 50 of the most wish-listed games on Steam before launch. It made it to the "Top Selling", "New and Popular", and "Featured and Recommended" tabs on Steam. Ultimately, DARQ became the number 42 Most Shared PC Video Game of 2019 (Metacritic).
In this book, I describe how I did it. If you're an aspiring developer wanting to make a living from making games, this book is for you.
The book guides you through a step-by-step process of making a commercial game. It teaches you how to learn all the necessary skills and covers various aspects of game development: mindset, preproduction, funding, business, law, development, marketing, PR, publishing, distribution, as well as pre-launch, launch, and post-launch strategies.
