  • Learn How To Make Your Own Video Game

    Every aspect of a video game requires attention, care, and expertise during development. So if you're interested in jumping into the indie scene, you're going to need to learn to wear a lot of hats. Thankfully, this week's Humble Book Bundle by Mercury can give you a leg up on gamedev knowledge.

    New to game development? For just one buck, you can get your feet wet with five DRM-free digital books. From design to programming to high-end production techniques, these books will give you a glimpse at what it takes to make a great game.

    • Digital Filmmaking
    • Video Game Addiction
    • Hollywood Studio Production Techniques

    At the $8 tier, you'll also unlock six more multi-format ebooks that run the gamut from examining classic games to developing new titles for iPhones.

    If you're looking for even more info, pony up a minimum of $15, and you'll receive the previous two tiers plus eight additional digital books. With this level, you can tackle 3D modeling, learn about AI, and sharpen your coding skills.

    Beyond the savings, Humble Bundle is easy to love for another reason: Charitable giving. Part of your purchase will go to a charity, and it's up to you which one will benefit. The UK-based Whale and Dolphin Conservation organization is currently being featured, but you can easily swap to any one of the thousands of participating charities.

    Sapphiresoft announced that SRPG Studio is available right now on Steam for PC. The design and illustration software utility allows you to create your very own simulation style role-playing games without requiring any programming or art design skills, and you can grab a digital copy of the new program for just $59.99.

    If you do have some design skills, you can create your own illustrations and implement them into the game, along with your own custom videos, sprites, and even music.

    You can see what the tools look like in action via a series of tutorial videos courtesy of YouTuber Driftwood Gaming.

    The video above goes through the basic setup of the trial version of SRPG Studio.

    You can setup your game’s basic backgrounds, combat scenarios, sprites, illustrations, and dialog systems.
