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.

[color=rgb(41,73,90)][font='Open Sans']

**Update June 5th** -Sick and tired of having to water all of your plants? Introducing the Kappa plant! When full grown this plant stores water in the top of its stalk. Any other plants in close range will share it's water! meaning as long as the kappa is watered any other plants near it wont need watering!

[/font][/color]
[color=rgb(41,73,90)][font='Open Sans']

-Added "Small Rocks" .These will be randomly generated with each new game.This is the first object added that can be crushed by the full grown Gozar's jaws.Breaking open certain rocks can sometimes reveal rare gemstones! -Added three new gemstones that can be found in rocks, the "shadow gem" the "Crimson gem" and the "glowing amber".

**Update June 3rd**

[color=rgb(41,73,90)][font='Open Sans']

-Added new underling the "Gozar" These underling are often dark green in color due to the moss that grows on their body.Besides their normal diet of plants and vegetation they require a mineral to help the body battle harsh conditions, only found in rocks where the Gozar is found. They are able to crush these rocks and ingest them with their powerful jaws.

[/font][/color]
[color=rgb(41,73,90)][font='Open Sans']

Tip-Every so often a full grown Gozar will open it's mouth, when this happens you can drag any breakable item to him and he will help you find what's inside!

[/font][/color]
[color=rgb(41,73,90)][font='Open Sans']

-Added new insect, the "Yengo Fly" these are attracted to the glowing fungus pits on a full grown Yengo's skin.These will also generate enlightenment for your garden, if you aren't in need of enlightenment you can catch them and sell for credits. -Fixed enlightenment spamming problems, enlightenment is no longer gained from watering plants.
