      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'm going to move you to our For Beginners forum, as your question is really more about getting started developing games than it is about game design.


It's good that you're looking to make a simple game to begin with, but let's get some information so we can help you to get started properly. Obviously you've chosen to use ActionScript3 to make a Flash game; this is a good choice, and one that will allow you to make some money off of your games once you've learned the basics.


[b]1.[/b] To begin with, what operating system are you using? If the answer is Windows as I suspect, which version are you working with?

[b]2.[/b] Secondly, have you chosen which tools (Adobe Flash, Flex Builder, FlashDevelop, HaXe, etc.) you will use to create your games... which one are you using? Have you got it installed on your computer and ready to use, or do you need help setting up your tools?

[b]3.[/b] Next, do you have any experience yet, or are you starting from scratch? If you haven't learned a few basic things such as loading and displaying a graphic on the screen, you'll probably need to go through a few quick tutorials on that before we look at starting on Tic Tac Toe (naughts and crosses for anyone unfamiliar with that name). Note that we're not going to just give you the source code to a tic-tac-toe game, and if we did it wouldn't really help you to learn -- but we can help you out with tutorials, resources, advice and trouble-shooting to help you write your very own!


I'm not going to offer any further advice or links yet, as it may or may not be relevant based on your answers to my questions above -- help us to help you, and let us know your answers to those things so we can offer further information!

thank you for your reply.

i am using windows 7 Ultimate.
i have already installed Adobe Flash 3.0, all components required are ready.
i have few knowledge about this thing like tweening.. changing images to movie clips, buttons or graphics.. i know how to publish it and run it.
but when it comes to source code writing my leanings are not enough, i know some basic codes because i am quite familiar in C++ Syntax.

Sir, if you could send me links that will give instant source code to tictactoe playing multiple users, would be very useful because i know how read codes, but
i do not know how and when to use it during coding.. i chose tictactoe because i used to play this and i know the rules of the game, it would be very useful for me
to interpret and understand the codes... thank you for giving your time answering my post.. Godspeed!
