We’re excited to let you know about the latest addition to the Tuts+ family — Gamedevtuts+!

Gamedevtuts+ is dedicated to teaching game development, with tutorials, tips, and articles about level layout, game design, coding, and working in the industry. We walk you through how to create games from scratch, go into the theory behind game development, level and character design, discuss working in the industry, and much more…

What to Expect on Gamedevtuts+

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about game development, or brush up on what you already know, we think you’re really going to love our latest site! We’ll be publishing a combination of step-by-step written tutorials and screencasts/video lessons. Most weeks you’ll see 4-5 high quality tutorials, tips, and articles, so make sure to subscribe to the Gamedevtuts+ RSS feed so you don’t miss a thing.

If you’re an experienced game developer and you have the skills to create a screencast or text and image tutorial for Gamedevtuts+, it’s easy to familiarize yourself with the guidelines and pitch your idea. We’d love to help you pass on your experience.

Player/World Interaction Through the Lens of Player Mobility

When Designing a World, Player Mobility Must Come First

Ever played a game that was packed with great set pieces, concepts, characters, and mechanics, but nevertheless felt boring? Perhaps the problem lay in how your character moved through and interacted with the game world. In this article we’ll take a look at player/world interaction through the lens of player mobility for a few key games, and see how this helps us understand level design and character design.

To be honest, I dont think this will be a winning tuts+. If it was for Action-script then maybe, but if you make a tut for making a iOS game, what place does it go? Mobiletuts+ or this new place?

EDIT : Just looking, there is an activetuts+ with the title `Browser app and game development tutorials`. so I dont get why you would make a site when you already have a site for it, that is already successfully

Activetuts+ has actually been discontinued.

Good luck to the new site. I’m sure there will be some awesome content on there.
