40+ Fantastic Game Development Tutorials From Across the Web
The indie gamedev community is awesome: so willing to share tips, tricks, advice, and even detailed tutorials explaining important concepts. Here, I've rounded up a few dozen of my favourite examples from around the internet, covering coding, maths, game design, and being a game developer. This is the quality of content that we aspire to achieve at Gamedevtuts+. This AI tutorial takes an interesting approach to pathfinding. In the image above, suppose that the green dot is a computer-controlled character, the white E is its target destination, and the brown blocks are impassable mountains. The basic technique is to make the target generate a positive field and the mountains generate negative fields - as if they were positive and negative electric charges. The tutorial dives in to much more detail, showing how to deal with enemy units, local minima, and other situations. A demo of the final result. Video demo of the final effect. This is one of my favourite tutorials of all time.
