      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. 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.

Tutorials & Downloads (Under repair)

70 posts in this topic

Welcome again to another Veovis thread. Like my other one, this shall be an ever growing Work In Progress.

The theme of this thread is Tutorials and Downloadables for use in games. Like before, I need your help. If you know of other good sources for these things...post 'em...and I'll update the main list.

Thanks in advance again.

EDIT....oh, and I'd also like some Tutorials for Sprite and Tileset creation. If you have a URL handy, I'd love it.

Added in a Tileset creation Tutorial, and some Font download links.

I'm eagerly awaiting other people to start sharing their internet sources for tutorials and downloads.

Very good. I've added the first 2. The third, I can't get it to load. But if it ever does, I'll update. And the 4'th, being software, will be added in my Software thread, under "Other Software".

A few other things were added too. Under Modeling, Textures, and Full Processes.

Page 2 is an evil place for an important information thread to be. Especially since people are now asking for tutorials on low poly modeling. Hence this bump.

I added a new tutorial under Rigging and Animation for IK setup. And please, continue to suggest other URLs for me to add.

I don't really understand that.

I include every URL that people give me for Tutorials and Downloads into the original list. They always become hyperlinks when I update the list. Seems very easy for navigation already.

Sprite creation? Surely you have this url!

Another way to make sprites is using rendering software; that's what I'm doing for my current project ...



I wonder if that would be worth writing a tutorial about ...

Ok. eedok, I've added in that link which wasn't loading before. And 23yrold, the sprite link has been included. It'd also be delightful if you made that Tutorial. I'd link to it immediately. :)

Nice animation, by the way.

*EDIT, I've also added a "Polygon Reduction" tutorial that was mentioned in another thread.

That url is ALMOST correct. The right one should be: Pixelation.Swoo.Net!
