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.

What Landfish has done to this forum

32 posts in this topic

Having met and discussed often with Landus Fishus, I can safely say he is 83 years old, and four years old. And still fifteen. Not to mention having existed since the beginning of time.

It occurs to me that until I have something useful to say, I''m just going to yap on about Landfish enigmaticly. I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO PAY ATTENTION TO ME! i''m so lonely.

I can''t come up with a signiture right now. Ask me again later.

*sigh*

I''m busy working, writing for landfish.com, and I come on here for inspiration, and what do I find? Deqlan raving like an absolute idiot, and Landfish just confirming that idiocy...

Take your squabbling elsewhere, I''m doing "research!"

(It''s okay...I know both of them...I''m justified in my pokes and jabs...unlike the rest of you! You should all be ashamed at yourselves!)

Okay...I''m getting back to work Landfish...I promise I''ll do a good job this time so I don''t get beaten!!

Niphty, they came unbidden, I swear to you. Their arrival was as much of a suprise to me as, well, it was sure suprising. But I am glad to have them here, since they can expand their minds on this site as I have done. Well, hopefully I have.

Well Now,

Landfish, I guess you''ve seen the thread
about possibly creating a new forum soley for
RPG discussion. What do you think about it.
You''d probably be asked to be the moderator.
But now that I think about you have literally
turned this forum into an RPG forum anyway.

Ok, this doesn''t quite belong here in this forum, and since I pretty much deemed myself moderator here (because Geoff is who knows where), I''m going to close this thread. Stick to design, not ego-boosting.
