Oh yeah, are you a game artist and you want to see your art in an upcoming book? Then you should contact me and we should chat!
It has been about five years since my last book came out. During that time, a lot has happened. Heck, that book was about Managed DirectX, and at the time it came out XNA Game Studio didn’t even exist as an idea, much less a product. Since then, it’s not only been released, but we’ve announced the *fourth* version of the product! We’ve added support for Windows, Xbox, Zune, and soon, Windows Phone 7.
So much has changed, so much time has passed, it was time to do a new book. This new book will cover Game Studio 4.0 in its entirety, including Windows Phone 7, the new features, Xbox, everything. While we haven’t announced any release dates for Game Studio, I’m spending my spare time (what little I have) to make sure the book will come out as close as possible to the release of the product.
I’m also having some help with this one, and will have a co-author, so that is a bit exciting too! Writing has begun so if you have suggestions, now is the time!
