"I was impressed with the organizational wisdom. I wish that I had been able to read this book 30 years ago." — Chris Crawford, pioneering game designer and Founder of the Game Developers Conference
"The best book to start with if you are considering developing your own game… Daglow brings you his years of experience in game design and development in a straightforward and comprehensive guide. He will show you a step by step method, proven techniques, and pitfalls to avoid… It makes no false promises… Daglow writes in a voice that is a cross between a patient sage under a Bodhi tree and a hardcore street philosopher strengthened by mixed realities… The insights and nuggets of truth… will temper your idealism with realism [and] stoke the fires of your passion." – Readers’ Favorite; August, 2019
The only indie games book that asks, "What do you want to do?" before it starts telling you, "Here’s what you need to do."

Techniques to use, traps to avoid, terminology to understand. And how to fit it all into your life without damaging your relationships or your future.
Never started a business? We’ve got it covered. Skip what you already know, dig deeper on things you want to learn.
It’s the one book you need to take your indie game from Dream to Delivery.
