The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

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.

Yea...i heard something about someone making a fasttracker 3, but it''s not starbreeze who make it...and it was strarbreeze who made FT2. I heard something about fasttracker 3 being pretty MIDI-friendly...but i dont know much more than that. But if it is going to be for windoes, there will be the annoyinh lastensy-problem!

Yea, technically IT3 is better, no question about it.
But really, i just cant stand the interface! it''s so ugly it makes me wanna puke. You see i use FT2, and i have tried IT, but i just cant stand the interface. If i would compare the interface of IT and FT, IT would get 2/10 and FT 8,5/10.

But you know, evrybody use the program he/she feels most comfortable in, whatever reason that may be!

And all the best tracked music i have heard have ben mostly in .XM format, since more ppl use FT.
