      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've posted a sort of "open test" of AI dodging behavior.
It's a realtime 3D demo, running in browser - so you need the Shiva3D webplayer


You'll find details here on the web
You can test it, if you wish. And please, don't be afraid to tell me what you think.

Just to give a bit of update. About how the development goes.
I'm pretty much finishing the Boss fight scene and I was thinking about posting the scene on the web as a playable demo. I thought I might ask, if there's anyone who would appreciate it [img]http://www.stonetrip.com/developer/forum/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif[/img] and actually try to play it ?
I'm not sure if it's a good idea to post such things, but hey it might be interesting to see some fragments of the game, no ?

More info here :

Yeah and some new screenshots [img]http://www.stonetrip.com/developer/forum/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif[/img] ... more on the web, be sure to check them out [img]http://www.stonetrip.com/developer/forum/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif[/img]
I had a bit hard time optimizing the scene, but finally I did it.
Before I was making the nebulas with particles, but it was causing too much overdraw on mobiles. So I changed it to few textured billboards instead.
