The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

I'll just leave this here:


entrypoint :
{
integer total = sum(1, 10)
printinteger(total)
}

sum : integer begin, integer end -> integer ret = 0
{
while(begin < end)
{
ret += begin
++begin
}
}



foo :
{
complex i = 0, 1
assert(i * i == -1)
}


fib : 0 -> 1
fib : 1 -> 1
fib : integer n -> integer ret = fib(n - 1) + fib(n - 2)

I think this is fine. Although, I don't like "printinteger" and would rather just see a "print" that's overloaded.

I have no trouble at all following the syntax and understanding what is being said by the code.

Btw, this is for you:
[code]
Seans-MacBook-Air:EpochCompiler washu$ nm EpochCompiler.dll | grep ByteCode | head -n 4
0000000000093e70 T _CompileSourceToByteCode
0000000000094310 T _FreeByteCodeBuffer
00000000000943f0 T _GetByteCodeBuffer
0000000000094450 T _GetByteCodeBufferSize
[/code]

EpochCompiler built on Mac OS-X with CLANG... had to remove the dependency on EpochVM. Fairly simple to remove too, since EpochCompiler only seems to rely on TypeInfo.cpp... that should probably be refactored and eliminated to simplify compilation and also make EpochCompiler more useful (i.e. be able to plug it into a jit or other interpretor than just EpochVM).

I thought you might like this... wrote up a quick .net version of the parser and lexer. No syntax evaluation or anything, just produces an AST and then prints the AST...
