CIS125G Course Reader

Welcome to the CIS125G Reader. This covers the game design thread of knowledge in CIS125G: Computer Game Development at Chemeketa Community College.

This reader was assembled by Andrew Scholer. Hearty thanks go out to Ian Schreiber for developing and making free the work Game Design Concepts that is the basis for most of this reader; the web video series Extra Credits for producing incredible videos for those who want to make and/or understand games; and to former student Thomas Cushman for servings as a reviewer of the reader.

Game Guides

These game guides demonstrate making a few simple games using Gamemaker software. All media resources used are creative commons or public domain as are these guides. They are designed to be worked through in order... later guides may make use of techniques described in earlier ones without re-explaining what is going on.
