What kind of book I read, that should do a full indie game?

\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ This question needs some more details. At least provide the platform you would like to develop for and what topics the book should cover. Programming? Design? Marketing? \$\endgroup\$ – bummzack May 9 '11 at 11:35

  • \$\begingroup\$ In that case, maybe have a look at this question: gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/3637/… \$\endgroup\$ – bummzack May 9 '11 at 13:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ "How do I make a game" is too broad a topic, even if you're asking for links to books. There are also lots of "getting started" and "book recommendation" type questions already here. \$\endgroup\$ – Tetrad May 9 '11 at 14:16

For game design I can recommend The Art of Game Design: A book of lenses.

\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ That is an awesome book and I highly recommend it to all game designers, but it's no end-to-end technical text. \$\endgroup\$ – jhocking May 9 '11 at 13:32

Depends a little on what you are looking for a game.

You could do some Flash Games with little scripting but you have to learn the Flash scripting itself. If you can program C/C++/C#/Java you can find here some books which could be very interesting.

So, what is it what you can and what is it what you want to create?

  • \$\begingroup\$ for a beginning a simple physics game and later a full indie game with c++ for Windows PC. I mean the game design is also. In order to fully complete an indie game. \$\endgroup\$ – Saulius May 9 '11 at 11:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ The largest part of my question is: I am thinking whether I should join the team to create a game? \$\endgroup\$ – Saulius May 9 '11 at 13:03
