Gamasutra Expert Blogs: From Minecraft to learning the hard way

August 23, 2012 | By Eric Caoili




In highlights from Gamasutra's Expert Blogs, industry notables write about diverse topics, including the concept of uncanny with Minecraft, lessons learned the hard way for a new developer, and more.

In our weekly Best of Expert Blogs column, we showcase notable pieces of writing from members of the game development community who maintain Expert Blogs on Gamasutra.

Member Blogs -- also highlighted weekly -- can be maintained by any registered Gamasutra user, while the invitation-only Expert Blogs are written by development professionals with a wealth of experience to share.

We hope that both sections can provide useful and interesting viewpoints on our industry. For more information about the blogs, check out the latest official posting guidelines.

Here are the top blogs for the week:
