By the end of the book, you'll have made three amazing sample games and have the skills and information you need to make more games on your own. You'll start by exploring the different game genres and learning how to organize and develop your own game ideas before you begin creating. Then you'll learn about game creation fundamentals such as graphics settings, methods, and features, as well as how to use and record music and sound in games. Once you have the basics down, the book will introduce you to the Games Factory 2, including how to install it, important program terminology, and a walk-through of the important editors and screens you will use next when you create the three sample games in the book.
