Passing this along, from Marwan Ansari. “Real” blogging again soon…
Now that the first volume of Game Development Tools has gone to the printers and will be available shortly, we invite you to submit a proposal for an innovative article to be included in a forthcoming book, Game Development Tools 2, which will be edited by Marwan Y. Ansari and published by CRC Press/A. K. Peters. We expect to publish the volume in time for GDC 2012.
We are open to any tools articles that you feel would make a valuable contribution to this book.
Some topics that would be of interest include:
· Content Pipeline tools (creation, streamlining, management)
· Graphics/Rendering tools
· Profiling tools
· Collada import/export/inspection tools
· Sound tools
· In-Game debugging tools
· Memory management & analysis tools
· Console tools (single and cross platform)
· Mobile Device (phone/tablet) tools
This list is not meant to be exclusive and other topics are welcome.
The schedule for the book is as follows:
July 1 – All proposals in.
July 18th – Authors are informed and begin writing articles.
Aug 19th – First draft in to editor
Sept 16th – Drafts sent back authors with notes for final draft.
