Greetings and Salutations!  

We're happy to announce that Russ Pitts has completed his 312 page book on The Making of Defense Grid 2, and your Defense Grid 2 Steam Special edition has just been electronically updated today so that your launch-day preview of his ebook has been fully replaced with the final complete edition!

Here's the official "inside the book cover jacket" BLURB:

THE MAKING OF DEFENSE GRID 2 brings you behind-the-scenes of the creation of a modern video game. Over nearly two years and hundreds of hours of interviews, veteran video game journalist Russ Pitts (Polygon, The Escapist) has been given total access to every stage of development, and dives deep into the technological innovation, creative artistry and hard-nosed business that combine over weeks, months and years to make a game. From moments of startling inspiration to times of crushing stress, the author has been present for every aspect of production — major milestones, critical beta tests and sometimes contentious design meetings. 

Sit back, relax, and read the pdf file included with your Steam special edition on your computer screen, or feel free to email it to your favorite e-reader device and read the book on the go.  It's yours to read and enjoy, and you can revisit the events behind the scenes and learn more about all the folks on the development team you met reading the Polygon series, but in greater detail and with thousands of additional words of new content.

Thanks much to Russ Pitts for sharing his book with all the folks on Kickstarter and who purchased the Steam special edition.

Protect the cores!

To view, launch the game and you'll find in the left-hand corner of the launcher a tab for the book. Click that and enjoy!
