“As kids grow up playing video games, it’s only natural for them to wonder how these games are made. The Sequence Entertainment series (6 titles) is dedicated to putting this process on display, from start to finish. Here readers walk through the basic steps of video game production, from conception to release, with a generalized time line running along the pages to chart the game’s progress. Through a fictional RPG and design team, kids observe how an idea transforms into a game at the hands of artists, graphics and sound designers, writers, producers, coders, and game testers. Scattered tech terms are defined in a glossary, but the book’s objective isn’t to teach game design; rather, it illuminates the big-picture process and many STEAM skills that it involves.”—Julia Smith
