<p>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</p><p>Developing video games—hero's journey or fool's errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building today's hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In <em>Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, </em>Jason Schreier takes readers on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, <em>Blood, Sweat, and Pixels </em>reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean—it's nothing short of miraculous.</p><p>Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses readers in the hellfire of the development process, whether it's RPG studio Bioware's challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build <em>Dragon Age: Inquisition</em>; indie developer Eric Barone's single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG <em>Stardew Valley </em>from one man's vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create <em>Destiny</em>, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as <em>Star Wars</em> and <em>Lord of the Rings</em>—even as it nearly ripped their studio apart. </p><p>Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, <em>Blood, Sweat, and Pixels </em>is a journey through development hell—and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable.</p>

<p><strong>Soon to be a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, and Michael Cera—the true story of "Hollywood’s poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.</strong></p><p>Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world—an insider’s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.</p><p>In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen—she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.</p><p>Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly’s game became the game for those in the know—celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world’s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.</p><p><em>Molly’s Game</em> is a behind the scenes look at Molly’s game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.</p>
