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'll tell you now. You're doing it all wrong. If you want to recruit and tell about your game, then you do it in Your Announcements. They have a template that you have to fill out. Seeing that you're new, I'm sure the mods will give you a warning. But please follow the template in the Your Announcements forum. Thank you.

I believe you're mistaking the 'Your Announcements' forum with the old 'Help Wanted' forum.

@WingAnimeGames:

Some pointers:
-Don't cross post and spam the same post all over the forum
-Give more information about what your project is about, with this info you just sound like yet another 'idea guy'
-Create an entry in the classifieds if you're looking for people, don't post it here on the forums

I'm sorry, but no one, I repeat no one, is going to steal your game idea. If you'd been making games for a while and weren't just some random person who wants to make a game you'd know this. I doubt anyone will be messaging you without a clear Idea at all about what your game is, and you should give us more information. I wouldn't join a team with someone who couldn't program, do art, or help with anything, without a website or any links, and nothing to show, not even a story! Give us more information, give us a link. Show us what you've done, show us your team members. Have them post. Do something to show is that you're a real person, with a real company, making real games. Because if you just decided you want to make a game and are trying to get a team because you don't want to spend a few years learning yourself, I can guarantee you you're not going to be getting any team members, let alone any GOOD team members.
(Since your new to the forum, please don't downvote me, because if you look, what I said isn't and I quote "not useful and does not improve the conversation". This isn't reddit, people on here actually expect you to be respectful)
