My pal Scott is a great friend, and a terrific designer. He's worked on everything from PacMan to God of War, and most recently lent his knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm to Disney as an Imagineer.
His book Level Up! The Guide to Great Video Game Design inspired me to write the VGC Series in the first place. But that's just one of his titles. Scott's books are all about great game design - on console, mobile, even tabletop games. If you're serious about design, be sure to check them out.
I'm honored to have a blurb from him.
