More specifically check out

http://www.gamedev.net/reference/programming/features/gpgenesis1/

it''s the best tutorial I''ve found online. A book on the side and a good understanding of c++ helps ALOT.

A book that's often recommended is "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus", by Andre LaMothe (who gives the impression of being a bit crazy). I've read it, and it's pretty good. It details all the steps needed to create a game, from basic Windows programming right up to AI. That's if you want to spend money.

Otherwise, search the net.

I have it next to me here. It''s ok, but it helps the best if you''re used to developing for DOS, first (see Teach Yourself Game Programming in 21 days, by the same author). I mean, he covers 320*200 modes, 8 bit color, and so on. Windows is capable of so much more...

(...provided it''s working. )
