      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.

I have added 9 new articles.

All articles with a "*" are new articles and I will update that everytime I add new articles so it is a bit easier to check what is new and what not.

Enjoy!

Edit: feel free to send me articles as well if you find some. The more, the better and I will add the name from the person who has send them in.
You can send the link(s) in a PM or in mail to musicproductions [at] jaapvisser.com or simply post them here.

There's too much good stuff here to let this thread possibly slip into obscurity. Perhaps the mods can make it a sticky?

Audio Design meets Audio Code by Jon Holmes.

"Now that tools for game audio are improving it is imperative we don’t lose this relationship. Communication is one of the most important things when working as a team, and no content creation tool can replace that. Here are four dos and don’ts I've experienced that both sides can do to keep the bond strong."

Here is a recent website about music theory with a nice presentation: http://academic.udayton.edu/tobyrush/theorypages/index.html. It is not perfect but it can be nice for people with a poor background in music theory.
 
(I am not affiliated with it, I learned about it on HackerNews)


This site is quite interesting, the way they talk about the theory with some humor is great, even more for people entering the music theory.
