Book Description:

Making a game can be time-consuming and can easily go over budget if not well planned. Using procedural generation in game design can help with complex and varied aspects of game development; thereby helping to reduce costs. This form of development allows games to create their play areas, objects and stories based on a set of rules, rather than relying on a developer to manually handle each element separately.

Readers will learn how to create random maps, weave random storylines, and manage complex systems that are prone to unpredictable behavior. Tanya Short and Tarn Adams’ book Procedural Generation in Game Design provides an extensive collection of chapters from various experts on the implementation and implementation of procedural generation in games. Designers from various studios provide specific examples from their games to illustrate many aspects of this new sub-discipline.

Key Features:

  • An introduction to the differences between static-traditional game design and procedural game design.
  • Demonstrates how to solve or avoid common problems with procedural game design in a variety of specific ways.
  • Includes experience from industry leaders and lessons from award-winning games
  • The world’s best guide on how to start thinking about procedural design

Procedural Generation in Game Design

Описание книги:

Использование процедурной генерации в игровом дизайне может помочь в сложных и разнообразных аспектах разработки игр; тем самым помогая снизить затраты. Эта форма разработки позволяет играм создавать свои игровые области, объекты и истории на основе набора правил, а не полагаться на разработчика, который вручную обрабатывает каждый элемент отдельно.

Читатели узнают, как создавать случайные карты, составлять случайные сюжетные линии и управлять сложными системами, которые склонны к непредсказуемому поведению. Книга Тани Шорт и Тарна Адамса «Процедурная генерация в игровом дизайне» содержит обширную коллекцию глав от различных экспертов по реализации и реализации процедурной генерации в играх. В ней дизайнеры из различных студий приводят конкретные примеры из своих игр, чтобы проиллюстрировать многие аспекты этой новой дисциплины.
