Video Game Careers is an easy-to-read series of guides to the complex world of game development, written for gamers and the people who love them.

"The Video Game Careers series is just what an aspiring game creator needs to hear. When 'Hardy Says', you had best listen!" - Scott Rogers, author of Level Up! The Guide to Great Video Game Design
