About Game Creation

General

  • Gamasutra (I literally want to read/watch 75% of what this site uploads but at the rate they put up articles (about 30 articles a week) I can’t keep up with everything. I won’t bother linking to any articles directly on this site since I ended up bookmarking 100+ articles in my browser)
  • GDC Vault (videos, some can only be watched by members I think)
  • Make It Big In Video Games
  • Making of Defence Grid 2
  • RogueBasin (pretty much everything about Roguelikes)
