DIGITAL GAMEPLAY isn't another game programmer's handbook, but a collection of scholarly, college-level essays on the topic of digital games with a survey of the role of the game. Fifteen essays discuss how players interact with games--essential information for programmers to know--and survey both physical and mental aspects of playing. While video games are also included, any game programmer will find discussions of how games are perceived and used by players to be important considerations in organizing and developing routines.
