I’ve received feedback that one of the challenges for first-time developers coming to this site is that the volume of content can make it difficult to find a sensible starting point. Although I published a Best Of, that’s now roughly 30 entries behind.
Here’s a fresh pass – albeit not as a “Best of”, so much as, “If you’re new to videogame making, these entries may be a good fit.”
(If, on the other hand, you already have experience, browsing by headlines may work better, or within skill divisions: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Special Topic. There’s also a list of Tags providing 20+ categories at the bottom-right of the main page.)
An Order of Practical Entries
Though these are not in a strict order, I’ve attempted to put them in a semi-meaningful sequence, with the more introductory entries listed first.
About the Author’s Projects
If you’re curious about my background, here are some entries with information of that sort:
E-Book: 10 Years of Indie Dev Takeaways (most of my conventional projects)
InteractionArtist Guided Tour (experimental gameplay)
Chris DeLeon’s iPhone Portfolio (part of ChrisDeLeon.com)
ChrisDeLeon.com (links to my misc. project sites)
The Best Of article mentioned at the top of this one provides more excerpts and highlights (though only from the first year of content).
