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. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Where can I find the rules on bumping topics?

2 posts in this topic

Wasn't entirely sure where to ask this, so I put it here...
I posted a topic one of the forums a while back, and I only got one response, that did not actually address what I was looking for. It's been likely a little over a week without any responses, despite me responding to the other person.
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to where the bumping policies are for threads, because I honestly couldn't find them! Maybe I'm just blind.
Either way, thanks for the help in advance!

EDIT: Wrong poster.

Forum rules are here [url="http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/gdnethelp/gamedevnet-posting-guidelines-r2891"]http://www.gamedev.n...uidelines-r2891[/url]

(Hilariously the two comments are spam)

I didn't see anything about bumping but traditionally it is frowned upon here if it's within a day of the original post. Edited by Prinz Eugn

We don't have set guidelines on bumping, and as long as you're sensible about it you won't have any problems -- a moderator will warn you if you're over-stepping the mark. In general I'd say a good rule of thumb is to wait [i]at least[/i] 24 hours before bumping and to not continue to repeat bumping if you still aren't getting a response. If you're bumping a technical question you might try providing additional information with your bump, or asking if there is any more information that would help to solve your issue.
