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.

Let's google cocos2d

First hit, description:
A 2d game engine for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch that's fast, easy to use, free, and community supported

This already told me reasonably enough, but I decided to check the site out if there might be more info on there.
There's an about section, let's check it out!

[quote][list]
[*]Free: is open source, compatible both with closed and open source games
[*]AppStore approved: More than 2500 AppStore games already use it, including many best seller games.

all that info is about the iOS app store. I believe the original question was about the mac app store, which I'm guessing is kind of an odd way of asking: is cocos2d compatible with non gles/iOS specific frameworks. not sure.

it could be equally googlable. not going to check. I will guess the answer as no though.

Ah right, never worked with apple products and thought it would be the same thing.

Anyway, my point initially was that everything is within hands reach with a simple google search. Like.. Right now I just googled for "cocos2d mac" and well.. Just go through the results yourself and you'll see that this topic wasn't actually needed :)

Yes as of version 0.99.5 Cocos2d has supported the Mac as a target platform and allows submission to the app store.
