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.

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.

Crisis 51 - A Half Life MOD

5 posts in this topic

Crisis 51 A Single Player Half Life MOD needs some coders or a coder, what ever, 1 is better than 0. Crisis 51 is a single player MOD. Here is the story: -------------------------------- The top secret research facility, Site-4, lies inside the boundaries of the Groom lake facility (AREA 51) in a remote corner of the Nevada desert. Site-4 is the home of top secret aeronautic research, from aircraft weaponry to extra-terrestrial life forms, and most recently inter-planetary portals. Nearly all of the United States "black projects" are contained in Site-4. Site-4 is protected with state of the art security and defense technology so advanced that some detectors can actually smell and distinguish a person from an animal, as well as having highly trained Delta-Force (US special forces) as base security. The heavily armed and powerful terrorist organization Blackstar, is led by Davidov Romenenko, an ex-Russian Spetsnaz (Russian special forces), turned arms dealer and terrorist, a man so powerful governments around the world shiver at the thought of him. His organization started in 1989 and grew so strong they were able to take the newest and most advanced weapons by force, reproduce them for themselves and sell them on the black market. Blackstar has almost everything they could ever dream of, except for one thing... The object they desire most lies inside of Site-4, a weapon being built by S-4 scientists. The project, spearheaded by an insider working for Davidov named Earl Dixon, is the key figure in a plan to retrieve the weapon from Site-4. A heist of this scale is surely impossible. But they will overcome the impossible with the help of government moles, a large army, and state of the art technology to surpass the impenetrable wall of security and bring the US government to its knees using a weapon far more powerful than anything else they have ever seen. You are Mark Slater, a research scientist who specializes in anomalous materials, and weapons technology,with off-world survival and combat training. You are caught in the thick of this takeover while on a cosmic mission to find a very important element, Unopentium, otherwise known as ''Element 115'' and a very important component to the weapon being pursued by Blackstar. You must use your wits to fight your way out of the base and contact the outside world. Try to survive an impossible situation. Security will fall, terror will rise. Crisis 51, stay alive. -------------------------------- We have about 12 active members right now, but we lost our coders. We currently have helicopters coded in and wish to have ther flying and land vehicles too, as well as some terrorist AI, some BOSSES and of course weapons etc. If you would like to know anything else about the MOD, just go to www.crisis51.com or email me at hl_crisis51@hotmail.com Please talk to me on aim as "hlcrisis51". If you would like to fillout a form to join just go to www.crisis51.com/join.shtml. Thanks, Crisis Security Will Fall... Terror Will Rise... Crisis 51... Stay Alive...

I dunno. Seems a little dodgy to me. He cross posted this all over creation, and on this website he rants about some malicious person sending him an email virus that emails /itself/ all over the internet.

Other than that they do seem to have some good modelling done. I''m really considering working on a Half-Life mod, but I''m not sure I''d want to work with this guy.

I''m a professional software engineer in real life, working for a high end hardware/software company that produces machine vision systems.

I haven''t worked with halflife before. I just downloaded the SDK the other day, because I though that it''d be a nice change from the racing game/engine code that I''ve been working on lately.
