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 would like to come aboard, sordove. I have a game development company known as DragonWare Entertainment, we are working on one RPG now and partially making another one, 1 of the 2 will hit the market this fall. My team will assist you in the storyline, spells, battle systems, etc. I might be able to get 2 artists to help you but they are very busy drawing backgrounds for are current releases. We have a web site, i will be getting a domain name within the next few weeks. Right now the site url is http://ignitestudios.homestead.com/home.html
the reason it is Ignite Studios is that was our first name but we could not get the domain name rights because some jack ass wouldnt sell it. Contact me at master9060@yahoo.com

Why not get a leg up with open source. We need some experience help here, and have a functional isoengine.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JEDI-IsoAxEE

The current source is
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JEDI-IsoAxEE/files/DXIsoEngine+Source/

(just a little bit old). If you use CVS then got to sourceforge and get the latest and greatest.


If this were any more fun I''''d die!
