I'm a novice programmer, but am interested in building children's storybook "game" apps like the excellent ones put out by Nosy Crow. You can see an example of their work here:


Two questions: Is a game like this comparatively "simpler" to make, and therefore, would it be a good way for a novice to start learning how to build in touch/interactive gestures? Having never worked in a games studio or environment before, is there a standard/best practice when it comes to the workflow and development life-cycle of a game? Is there a resource you could recommend that would guide someone through the process of how this is done professionally for a game/app like the one mentioned (e.g. how is storyboarding done in an app studio?) I've looked at a few books, but I'd be eager to hear from professional developers on the entire process, what is involved, and any books they would recommend as resource to get me from A to completely finished.
