You Said This Would Be Fun

Good games don’t emerge out of thin air.  Game design is a craft, and as in any other craft, there are skills and knowledge, acquired through study and practice, that accelerate progress toward better games.  You Said This Would Be Fun explores these skills, showing how great games exhibit qualities that designers of all experience levels can strive to emulate.  There are many game design journeys — that of the first-time designer with a fresh idea, the experienced designer looking for new approaches, the enthusiast seeking a deeper understanding of how games work —  and if you are on (or considering joining) any of these, this book will be a useful guide to help you along your way.
