“Picture yourself playing Super Mario Brothers. Imagine the sensation of moving Mario around the level, the feel of jumping over pipes and platforms,” said Steve Swink, author. “In digital game design, ‘feel’ is the most overlooked facet of game design. It’s a powerful, gripping, tactile sensation that exists somewhere in the space between player and game.”

Cogswell Alumnus, Steve Swink (Class of 2005), authored the book Game Feel: A Game Designer’s Guide to Virtual Sensation. The publication was released in paperback in October 2008 by Focal Press/Morgan Kaufmann.

Steve Swink graduated from Cogswell in 2005 with a Bachelor degree in Computer and Video Imaging. He is a game designer and managing partner at Flashbang Studios, a creator of independent games in Tempe, Arizona.
