Hello,

 

I am very excited because I finished my first book (and we all know how hard it is for programmers to finish something).  Anyway, here's a link the book info.

 

"Fundamental 2D Game Programming with Java" by Tim Wright

 

http://www.indiegameprogramming.com/BookInformation.php

 

The release date isn't firm, but as soon as it's available I will post again.  Hopefully this book fills in that gap for people who want to make games in Java.  There are not that many good books on the subject.

I didn't set the price.  All that stuff is done by the publisher.  I think it is because it is a 650 page tome.  The cost a lot to print.

Why is it overpriced?

 

Remember that these things can be a bit subjective -- whilst $60 may seem expensive to you, it's a perfectly reasonable price to others.  If I were in the market for a book on this topic and if the reviews were positive I would be quite happy to pay that price.

 

Congratulations on getting it published Tim, hopefully it's popular and goes well for you! smile.png

Thanks jbadams.  I don't think I can judge how good it is, but I know all the programmers that per-reviewed it really enjoyed it.
