Media praise for Designing Games

"[I]f you're looking for a plain explanation of flow and how to create immersion, it is probably one of the first books you should read."
-- Lance Roth,

"...all that one needs to create a rich game experience is fully described in this excellent text."
-- Ira Laefsky,, MSE Computer Science/MBA IT Consultant & HCI Researcher formerly on the Senior Consulting Staff of Arthur D. Little, Inc. and Digital Equipment Corporation

"I only have one complaint about this book... it ended. [...] It's not a step-by-step manual about how to do good game design. It begins assuming you already have read the many books on those subjects. This is a book about game design in the real world."
-- Joseph Cassavaugh, Puzzles By Joe, Consultant, creator of PuzzlesByJoe
