My new game development book got published

Some people may have noticed a drop in published content on this blog for a while. Part of it was due to working on a new book for Packt Publishing, titled ‘Mastering AndEngine Game Development’, which was finalised last month with its publication. For those interested, it can be purchased both at the Packt store [1] and at Amazon [2].

What this book is, is an in-depth look at how to go from ‘making a basic mobile game’ using a game engine such as AndEngine [3], to making a truly advanced (mobile) game using 3D assets in a 2D game with OpenGL ES, dynamic and static lighting, frame-based and skeletal-based animation, anti-aliasing, GLSL shaders, 3D sound and advanced sound effects using OpenAL & OpenSL, and much more. While it’s aimed at extending AndEngine-based games, it’s written in a generic enough manner that it should be useful for those using other game engines, on Android or other platforms.

So far this is my first published book, but it probably won’t be my last. In the meantime I will try to step up the publication of content on this blog again, both with programming and electronics-related postings. Please stay tuned 🙂
