9780201767919: Software Engineering and Computer Games

"This book should be a requirement of anyone that wants to write games ¿ period"
André Lamothe, author and CEO of Xtreme Games

There are many books on the art of games programming but now acclaimed author Rudy Rucker has gone a step beyond and transformed it into a science.

Software Engineering and Computer Games uses an object-oriented (OO) approach throughout, incorporating UML for OO analysis and design and discussing software patterns and how to incorporate them into the design process.

The book covers nine topics:
1) Basic software engineering principles and techniques.
2) How to organize and complete a substantial software project
3) Practical examples of object-oriented design and programming.
4) The design of computer games.
5) Simulating physics inside our computer-generated worlds.
6) Artificial life, or how to simulate live creatures inside a computer program.
7) How to use two and three-dimensional computer graphics.
8) Windows programming with the Microsoft Foundation Classes, or MFC.
9) How to develop a project using Microsoft Visual Studio(Either Version 6.0 or .NET)

The game engine accompanying the book is an open source C++ framework (the POP Framework), available together with other accompanying material from the website.
The book can be used for self-study, with readers encouraged to use the POP Framework as a starting point for creating their own games.

Software Engineering and Computer Games was developed as the primary textbook for an undergraduate software engineering course and can also be the main book for courses on software projects or computer game design and programming.

From the Inside Flap:

There are many books on the art of games programming but now acclaimed author Rudy Rucker has gone a step beyond and transformed it into a science.

Software Engineering and Computer Games was written with four broad goals:

* To teach a lively style of object-oriented software engineering.

* To show how to bring a complete program to the level of a commercial release.

* To provide a "game engine" framework of linked classes for game development.

* To help students create computer games that are interactive, rapidly executing, and visually beautiful.

It uses an object-oriented (OO) approach throughout, incorporating UML for OO analysis and design and discussing software patterns and how to incorporate them into the design process. The book covers nine topics:

* Basic software engineering principles and techniques.
* How to organize and complete a substantial software project.
* Practical examples of object-oriented design and programming.
* The design of computer games.
* Simulating physics inside our computer-generated worlds.
* Artificial life, or how to simulate live creatures inside a computer program.
* How to use two and three-dimensional computer graphics.
* Windows programming with the Microsoft Foundation Classes, or MFC.
* How to develop a project using Microsoft Visual Studio (Either Version 6.0 or .

The book can be used for self-study, with readers encouraged to use the POP Framework as a starting point for creating their own games. Software Engineering and Computer Games was developed as the primary textbook for an undergraduate software engineering course and can also be the main book for courses on software projects or computer game design and programming.

From the Back Cover:

This book solves the dilemma of wanting to learn Windows-based software engineering without knowing Windows programming. The basics in Windows programming are explained alongside ideas of object-oriented software engineering. The basics of software engineering are thoroughly discussed first. Once completed, MFC Windows is then introduced through a video game. For programmers interested in learning Windows-based software engineering and Windows programming.@ISBN = 0-201-76791-0@MAINCAT = Computer Science@SUBCAT = Software Engineering@DATALINE1 = 2003, 352 pages, 7 3/8 x 9 1/8@DATALINE2 = Paperback, $86.40n
