End-to-End Game Development: Creating Independent Serious Games and Simulations from Start to Finish

Buy

In the award-winning AMC television series Mad Men, set in the early 1960s, a mysterious and massive machine shows up one day in the offices of the advertising agency Stirling Cooper. The machine is a Xerox photocopier, and the workplace is about to change forever. Previously, document duplication was done with a mimeograph, a hand-cranked drum machine that would ink a stenciled original to create up to a hundred ever more slightly muddy copies. Almost overnight, photocopying solved the problem of massive document distribution, accelerating the flow of information in every workplace, improving customer outreach, and becoming a standard tool for almost every employer and employee.
