I'm happy to report that a new videogame textbook is out! It's called Understanding Videogames and it's written by my former colleagues from ITU Simon Egenfeldt-Nielsen, Jonas Heide Smith, and Susana Pajares Tosca. Over the last few years I witnessed the writing process of this book and read a few chapters. I haven't yet got my hands on the printed version, but it should be a more than welcomed addition to the library of any game scholar or student. You can buy it here.
