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.

The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work.

[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif][size=4][size=5][size=4]I a[/size][/size][/size][/font]m new to this forum and am unsure if this is the correct place to post this, but please excuse me if it is not!

Many developers have some fantastic applications but lack either the budget, the contacts, or the experience to turn their applications into commercial successes. We are able to help with all three.

We are partnered with the Machinima Network of youtube uploaders. Briefly, we upload videos from well-known and popular internet celebrities showcasing and endorsing your applications. We are due to commence weekly videos focusing on iPhone applications. We are hosting these videos on two of our youtube channels, one of which with 1.375 million subscribers and one with 170,000 subscribers.

We have promoted 7 applications using this innovative method. The least successful of these received 17,000 paid downloads in two months, the most successful 85,000 downloads and counting, all within two months. All of the applications that we have advertised have received a notable return on advertising investment,with an average of 34,000 paid downloads. The average advertising spend is $2000 although we are able to offer less initially expensive packages.

If you are interested, please reply this thread or message me!
