Rodrigo Monteiro, who has been making games for twenty years now, started a thread on Twitter for sharing his favorite game programming resources. I then collected those and a few responses and indexed them into a Twitter moment here:

Here’s what was in the thread:

I should add something to the post that asks for suggestions to add to the list, or maybe post in the forums.

To be fair, one the articles on Component-Entity systems above links to an article here on gamedev.net.

Please let me know if you think of anything else to be added.

Thanks!
