      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. 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've updated my website some as well. And I got accepted onto IndieDB!
While working on the game I noticed a distinct lack of music so, I found someone that will be doing all the music for Archer Alec
and we are very excited.

Hopefully we will be trying to get the game to a point where we can have people test it in the upcoming weeks.

Nice! I love traps.

Question spam:
Will traps eventually fade after a certain duration after use?
Will Archer Alec eventually support multiplier/LAN play? (Cooperatively defending a single base)
As nice as you look in green, will other colors of robes be available? (perhaps through the shop?)
Will you eventually gain any magic abilities/skills or level up?

Certain traps maybe, for right now though no.
Probably not :/ I would love to implement that but that has to be something considered earlier in development. (future games I plan to have multiplayer interactions though)
Potentially, red/blue or maybe even an entire color wheel.
As of now no, but you will acquire many new traps.

Awesome video! Glad you're back! What other traps are you planning?

Thanks! :)
I don't want to spoil all the traps but, there will be wall traps, and ceiling traps in addition to the floor traps.
The next trap I will be working on will be the wall arrow turret trap.
