I'm about to buy a book, please help me pick the right one.

Recommended Posts

Hello

I decided to start learning c++. I have been doing the tutorial at www.learncpp.com and i'm about half way.

Now i would like to make games for windows platform with c++, maybe using cryengine, unity or other engine to help me. So now i would need to learn about how to create games on windows platform and learn the win api.

What book would you recommend? Can be any book i can order from amazon.

Thank you for your time.

Unity doesn't use C++, it uses C#, Boo and/or JavaScript. That said, its still a very good choice. There are over a dozen books on the subject, so picking one can be tricky. [URL=http://gamefromscratch.com/page/Unity-Book-Roundup.aspx]This Unity book roundup[/URL] should help.


CryEngine on the other hand is much easier to recommended a book for, [URL=http://www.amazon.com/CryENGINE-3-Cookbook-Dan-Tracy/dp/1849691061/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335434769&sr=8-1]this is it[/URL], as its the only book.

I'm not so sure CryEngine is all to beginner friendly though.
