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.

Hmmm, a free c++ compiler for mac that will be able to use OpenGL? That could be a toughy, i''d like to see the answers to this post too. But I don''t think that CodeWarrior for the Mac is that expensive (not compared to MSVC++ at least!). You never really hear about free Mac compilers.....Sorry that I couldn''t help!

I prefer CodeWarrior, but it''s way too expensive. If you can scrounge up a little cash you could get Discover Programming for Macintosh (which might compile for PPC, you need to check on it though). It is a version of CodeWarrior with a few features taken out and it can''t be used for commercial development. That''s what I started on, but have moved onto the acedemic version of CodeWarrior Pro 5 which is about half of the price for the regular version.
If anybody does know of other free compilers though, I would like to hear about them too.

ok, you can use mpw to get opengl to work. however you should read http://public.lists.apple.com/digests/mac-opengl/1999/99-Oct/v01.n144 which describes what you need to do + has an example makefile. personally i use codewarrior, but mpw will work fine if your''re willing to deal with it (i wasnt).

I didn''t bother using it either (I tried, it''s confusing as hell when comming from CodeWarrior). I was pretty peeved when I installed CodeWarrior Pro 5 and it installed a copy of MPW too. What''s up with that?
