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.

brand new puzzle game CIPHERTEXT for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch

1 post in this topic

Hi there,
my puzzle game named Ciphertext is now available on AppStore. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

3 out of 5 stars from appadvice.com
"…This game is about as basic as it gets. With computer-terminal-like graphics, no sound, and easy gameplay, this couldn’t be any more bare bones. Yet it’s the strategy and subtle hints dropped along the way that provide the challenge. …"

"Such a cool idea to make a version of minesweeper. Pooping is more fun now!" -?????

"If you enjoy the puzzle logic of minesweeper, you're in for a real treat with this one. Same fun base, but rebooted and surprisingly modern and slick." -????

Move to the adjacent safe square/s using the information based on the number of mines around you. Use your logic and memory to complete 40 unique levels.

Can't find a way out? Use your abilities: move diagonally or meditate to get detailed information about number of mines around you.

There a portals to make things harder too!

Push the limits of your memory by adjusting the difficulty level.

Collect clues by completing levels and try to decrypt the ciphertext.
