Most tools developers want to improve the user experience but are not given the time, lack the techniques, or don’t know where to begin. This book addresses these issues to empower tools developers to make positive steps toward improving the user experience of their tools.
Designing the User Experience of Game Development Toolsexplains how to improve the user experience of game development tools. The first part of the book details the logic behind why the user experience of game tools must be improved. The second part introduces the concept of user-centered design, a process that revolves around understanding people’s goals, watching them work, learning the context in which they work, and understanding how they think.
Ideal for anyone who makes, uses, or benefits from game development tools, the book presents complex concepts in a manner that is accessible to those new to user experience design. The book illustrates many proven concepts and techniques using before-and-after examples from tools development to supply you with the real-world understanding you need to become a better game developer. It also describes how to get buy-in from your team.
Although concepts have been simplified for those who are learning about user experience for the first, the text also includes resources in the footnotes for those who want more details.
