The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

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.

Well, after many months of working with several graphic artists and programmers, WorldAlpha Sniper is finally launched and live in the App Store! It was definitely a steep learning curve, but I'm happy with the final product. To get your copy and support the ongoing work of WorldAlpha, you can purchase the Full iOS Version it for only $1.99. It has both the city background and the military installation background, and access to all 5 guns. It is only going to be in the store for a limited time, as when the full MMO launches, it will be removed from the store, and exclusively playable in the MMO game. So, here is your chance to get a jump on the competition, and learn to play this minigame, and become a sniper master before the full MMO is released.

If you can't afford the $1.99, you can download a Free Demo iOS version, with only one background, and only 2 guns will be available.

You can also play the Free Demo Flash version as well.

I trust you like the game, and would be interested in any comments that you have.

Economy Progresses

The main core, and economy module has progressed quite a bit over the last month, as our full-time developer Chris has worked on the project. We hope to get most of the economy done by end of July, the military finished end of August, and the finishing touches on politics by end of September. We are pushing hard for beta in the fall, and released before the end of the year.
