      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.

Good job.
But you got few problems...
I downloaded the zip and i needed to put png files intro "./images/..." fix that. Also when a ball hits the paddle from side i was like 'nooo im gona lose' but then the ball went up ^^ should consider that as a lose.
Anyway 10/10! Package and price it 60$ and you will be rich in no time. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif[/img]

EDIT:
Also games paddle can go out of screen really far. Edited by BaneTrapper

Nice job and congratulations on finishing your game ;)

I played it a little, and have 2 complains on it. I didn't look at your code since I'm working on my own game, but still:
1) Paddle can get out of screen
2) Ball cannot fall down - when it touches bottom border it reflects back up.

Update: Breakout v2

CHANGELOG:
+Added a Main Menu!
+You lose when the ball hits the bottom of the screen! (Implementing Lives system soon!)
+Added Dynamic Buttons to the Main Menu!
+Fixed some bugs!

I've been working on this update for 2 days now. It only took an hour and a half for the main menu (I recently found out the difference between sf::MouseButton and sf::MouseMove!), and everything else if relatively minor. Hopefully I'll get you guys three lives and a game over screen on monday!

Source: [url="http://www.mediafire.com/?81eklg95gqe0sbq"]Here[/url]

Link Fixed
Also, you need to take BackgroundImage.png, PlayImage.png, and ExitImage.png from the Source folder and put them in the images file of the application folder (That's my fault, sorry :)) Edited by superman3275

Just updated, spent probably 1 hour and 45 minutes. I had some undefined behavior that made release mode only work half the time (I was using a undefined boolean in an if loop [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img]). So, here's the changelog:
CHANGELOG:
+Added Game Over Screen!
+Made it so the paddle can't go out of the screen!
-Undefined behavior that made the program not work for a lot of people!

Hope you guys enjoy it

Error 404 when clicking the link.. Also, when downloading your second version, the one that adds the title screen, you are missing 3 non-block images.

Test, test and test again before distributing your game(s)! Missing images shouldn't be the issue, otherwise, people may be skeptical the next time you post a link for feedback.

Keep up the positive attitude though, just scale back on the rush to get a link to your project up.

Regards,

Stitchs.

I just updated it:
CHANGELOG:
+Gave JTippets Credit for Images
+Added seperate endings for winning and losing the game.

You can download it at:

I hope you guys enjoy it, Dropbox is taking forever to upload it, but mediafire is super quick (I use both dropbox and mediafire, dropbox is sadly extremely slow however.)
