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.

Racism on front page?

17 posts in this topic

I wanted to visit this website to see how the XNA workshop is coming along. Little did I know the shock I would recieve after viewing the front page. There is a racist remark in plain view. Given the tons of children that visit this site, it's ridiculous. Is this the path this site is taking? If so, I won't be a part of it.

[color=#1C2837][size=2][quote = "benryves"] I could never get used to the lighter skins that the site has tended towards in recent years.[/quote][/size][/color]

I assume you are kidding, but since you've only been here for half a year, and no doubt just drop in every once and a while, I invite you to read that comment in [url="http://www.gamedev.net/blog/161/entry-2249289-back-in-classic-black/"]context[/url] and see for yourself that the user is absolutely not talking about lighter skins of ale, and thus, not racially neglecting Ireland's heavy but fine meads.

Excellent journalism skills!

Eye catching title: 100%
Appropriately taken things out of context: 100%
Length of article: 20%

Would have been a D if you went on about how the united nations should shutdown gamedev.net because of this terrible racist comment against white people.

Credit.

Speaking of racism, personally I find [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_black"]this guy[/url] and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_White"]this dude[/url] incredibly cynical. I mean, I can totally understand why Britain was in such a hurry to get rid of the previous PM.

PS - and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Brown"]this guy[/url] is just plain old racist.

And [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_white"]this bitch[/url]? I mean, WTF!
