The overall trend has witnessed a rise in the enrollment of students in gaming courses and the amount of games circulating online and offline has never been witnessed in its history. Some scholars have attributed the rise in gaming to the search by families for means of low cost entertainment, and what can be more enjoyable and less costly than a night spent enjoying a board game with family?

Kambiz Mostofizadeh said “Games are functional art that combine multiple skills, multiple disciplines, and an enormous amount of planning to be successful. Besides being time intensive, game developers and game publisher invest enormous resources long before a game reaches avid game players and gaming fans. But, it is the game players that are many times sought out by game publishers to test their games and provide feedback for their games.

That is why the Game Creation Manual is a perfect addition to a game maker’s toolbox. The Game Creation Manual is very useful to a person looking to start out in the game industry.
