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've been looking for a scripting language for my upcoming game engnie. After finding AngleScript, I don't think I'll use anything else. Keep up the great work!

cheers,

I did get the time to check out the game yesterday. It is an interesting idea, but I think that you have to make it easier to control to make it really fun. Not sure how, but right now I felt that the player doesn't really have control over how the ragdoll is thrown around.

I think that the scripting interface is ok. You might be able to streamline some functionality somewhat, but any scriptwriter would still have to use the manual to know how to alter the game. As an idea, you might want to expose the game object and the physics world as global properties to the script. That would eliminate the need to call getGameObject() and getPhysicsWorld().

I wouldn't worry about the syntax too much either. For someone that has never programmed before a script written in javascript or VBScript looks very much the same. It is never the syntax that prevents a beginner from learning, it is the ability to think in the ways of programming with functions, variables, etc.

Excellent to hear. I hope we'll get to see the result soon enough. [smile]

I have started working on my new 3D game engine and I have planned to use AngelScript this time for the engine. I dont however have any cool screenshots of the engine to show at the moment.

Welcome, AxoDosS. I'm happy you found AngelScript good enough for your purposes. Make sure to let us know when you have something to show. I'd like to put a link to your project on the users page.

I checked out your homepage. You have some impressive projects there. I'm sure your new 3D game engine will be just as impressive.

Hi WitchLord,
We are young development team from Poland. AngelScript has been used to control game logic and small pice of game AI in our last project "Chicken Village".

Thanks for that cool script language ;)
