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.

Hey I just decided to upload this to get some input. Lookin for some ideas on where to go from here. www.crosswinds.net/~insanityx/main.html Thats about 600kb, sorry. But it includes the source. So if anyone wants to take some time and look at that, add stuff, take away, change, completely throw out and re-write then please send it back with some comments. bizzaro_@hotmail.com As you can see im new. Id love to see some ideas so if you dont wanna play with the source you can mess with the exe. Not much to do though. Chad Edited by - insanityx on 6/16/00 10:13:55 PM

Well for starters you''ve named your zip file "NovaAlpha R2.zip" (With a space) which some people''s machines might not like (Or your server for that matter) Some servers will rename files when you upload them. So the space could have been removed or changed to another character like an underscore or something?
I still couldn''t get it after playing around a bit.

Well, I cant even log into my account now to change anything.
And every once in a while i cant even view my page. I guess thats whats been happening to you guys.

Can anyone recommend some more reliable web hosting? Preferably with no banner ad''s? And a decent amount of space.

Thanks for trying to look at it When i get a new working version ill upload it somewhere else (with no spaces ) Check it out then

Later, Chad

Yeah it''s in DirectX.
But I really dont think my page or game for that matter is impressive enough to have anyone else host it for me.
