Update: the Stencyl book was published May 2013. For more details visit www.TheStencylBook.com

Hi all,

The Stencyl book that I have been working on over the past few months is only days away from being published. Rather than providing a lot of information here, I'll provide a link to the book's page on the Packt Publishing web site:


http://www.packtpub.com/learning-stencyl-3x-game-development-beginners-guide/book

The eBook and the printed version can be pre-ordered now at a 20% discount, and the pre-release version of the eBook can be downloaded now (you'll be able to download the final version at no extra charge).
My understanding is that the discount will be removed when the book is officially published, so be quick if you want to save some money!

The book will also be available from Amazon, from the official release date.

I should add that, although the book is aimed at Stencyl 3.x, the vast majority of the content is relevant to Stencyl 2.2.

When the book is published, I'll post an update.

See the posts below for a possible 40% discount (unconfirmed)!

Nice, I'm sure this will help some of the new developers who aren't satisfied with existing tutorials.

Having served as a technical reviewer for Innes's book, I can definitely recommend it as a useful tool for anyone looking to get started with Stencyl or game development in general.

Congrats on the impending release!

Got the raw book and it added a lot of knowledge to the tutorials and crash course.
Sure, my games won't get better with all the new features of Stencyl.
But I do have more fun creating bad ones.

I think today may be the last chance to receive the 20% discount at the Packt Publishing web site!

[EDIT:Sorry, I was a bit premature with the above message!]

I don't know how long the suggested 40% discount is valid for (see earlier in this thread for details)
