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.

I have returned from my journey, now able to band out some slide licks on my guitar. Very nice... THANK YOU ALL for contributing, I think we have something to go on, now. If you haven''t posteed already and for some reason you would like to, go ahead. Those of you who''ve already posted, it''ll look bad if we use the same three people over and over...

Some of those were really funny, too.

Once again, if this actually works out, I might do something for you crazy bastards as well.

-peace out.

Me again! Well, good ol'' Landfish is still MIA, but I''m keeping an eye on things in his absence. I''ve finally sat down and copied all these quotes out to a text file so I can see what we actually have, and I need a couple things from some of you before we can use your quotes.

So, if at all possible, can the following people post (or e-mail it to me if you don''t want to post it for privacy reasons...you can get me at Matthew_Allain@emerson.edu) this info? Thanks!

1) Real Name

2) Affiliation (if none, just say so...don''t worry, we won''t make you look like a loser)

And here''s the people I need these from:

Paul Cunningham
Voodoo4
MadKeithV
Staffan
Taharez

Thanks guys!!
-Matt

--Don''t take me too seriously...apparently everyone thinks my mom is hot. *sigh*


I think I posted my real name already but here it goes again.

Real name: Staffan Gimåker
Affiliation: None, Nothing programming related at least. Still studying.

Hope that these arent too late -

"Landfish has ideas. Maybe that makes him a dangerous fish, or a helpful one. We might never know. But one thing that I do know is that how I think about games has been sucked out of my brain and replaced with something else. Questions."

boy is that the biggest bunch of crap ive ever posted!!!

"Landfish has the ability to create entire societies. Societies that probably should''t be there in the first place, but it''s nice to know that they are there nonetheless."

there...i did some quotes...now give me a swift kick in the rear.

Landfish was always thought of as a thinker, whether you agreed with him or not is trivial. He has conjured up so many interesting thoughts and discussions and has been an inspiration to us all.

Hey, it sounds like Landfish is dead and we are all saying nice things about him at the funeral =)

heh. One of the reasons I post sop rarely now is that I know many of you know what I''m going to say anyway. Like in the trolls, orcs and $$$ thread. Do I even need to...?

Some may already know, but we would like for you to word it. Otherwise, how can we quote you? I also need specific definition for the doc...

Yeah, I know exactly what you''ll say, Fishy. You were going to say that all goblins shall perish for no other reason than you want to feel like a badass, right?
