Program 3D Games in C++: The #1 Language at Top Game Studios Worldwide C++ remains the key language at many leading game development studios. Since it’s used throughout their enormous code bases, studios use it to maintain and improve their games, and look for it constantly when hiring new developers. Game Programming in C++ is a practical, hands-on approach to programming 3D video games in C++. Modeled on Sanjay Madhav’s game programming courses at USC, it’s fun, easy, practical, hands-on, and complete. Step by step, you’ll learn to use C++ in all facets of real-world game programming, including 2D and 3D graphics, physics, AI, audio, user interfaces, and much more. You’ll hone real-world skills through practical exercises, and deepen your expertise through start-to-finish projects that grow in complexity as you build your skills. Throughout, Madhav pays special attention to demystifying the math that all professional game developers need to know. Set up your C++ development tools quickly, and get started Implement basic 2D graphics, game updates, vectors, and game physics Build more intelligent games with widely used AI algorithms Implement 3D graphics with OpenGL, shaders, matrices, and transformations Integrate and mix audio, including 3D positional audio Detect collisions of objects in a 3D environment Efficiently respond to player input Build user interfaces, including Head-Up Displays (HUDs) Improve graphics quality with anisotropic filtering and deferred shading Load and save levels and binary game data Whether you’re a working developer or a student with prior knowledge of C++ and data structures, Game Programming in C++ will prepare you to solve real problems with C++ in roles throughout the game development lifecycle. You’ll master the language that top studios are hiring for—and that’s a proven route to success.

Game Programming in C++: Start to Finish takes current game programming information and filters it down to a practical level for aspiring game developers. The book is written for the hobbyist interested in making their own games, beginning Independent developers interested in starting their own small game company, students, or software developers considering making a transition into the game industry. Throughout the book, programmers work through exercises to build their own complete 3D asteroid game called SuperAsteroidArena. Beginning with engine creation and 3D programming with SDL and OpenGL, the book then moves to animation effects, audio, collision detection, networking, and finalizing the game. A variety of tools are used throughout, including VisualStudio.NET and OpenGL, Paintshop Pro, 3DS max, and the Audacity sound tool. The book does assume an understanding of C/C++ experience and focuses on programming on the Windows platform. The companion CD-ROM includes libraries and tools, including the SDL libraries, trial versions of Paintshop Pro Plus, Audacity, 3D Studio Max 7, InnoSetup, the source code from the book, and the complete game from the book.
