The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

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.

It seems that you like to type with words like seit. Maybe you should learn Assembly, it has stuff like MOV in it, so I think you''ll like it. As for Quake, you might want to put that off for a couple years, and start with a game like Pong.

C++

Alright, if you think Quake 1 is something small, then you are way off. You''re better off with something more realistic for a newbie, like Pong. Also, aside from your C++ books, you should buy one on writing skills (no offense, but seriously, you don''t want to be misspelling function and variable names every five seconds). As for another language, C++ should be fine, you don''t really need to learn another language to make games (except for english possibly). If you know C++, you should buy Tricks of the Windows Gaming Programming Gurus. That should help you. But seriously do not expect to be making Quake on your first project. It will be years before you make something like that, if at all. Start small, like Pong or Tetris, and work your way up.
