      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.

Also regarding gaming:

 

Chatwing is what your going to want to use for this to create your own gaming custom app:
You can embed the chat directly into your website and customize every aspect, also Chatwing has "custom login" which allows you to integrate your existing login system and user base directly into the chat.
 
A similar gaming community Chatwing is being used on is Destiny Team Finder(not using custom login but you get the idea) here is the PS4 room to give you a real example of whats possible:
 
Also, the really unique part about using Chatwing is that they have a chat app builder service so you can get a custom chat app that integrates your existing chats from your website, for example here is the Destiny Team Finder iOS+Android app that is powered by chatwing, you can see the same chats from the website above are in that, they have 4 different channels inside the app, i suggest test it out for yourself.
Destiny Android Chat App powered by Chatwing 
Destiny iOS Chat App powered by Chatwing
 
Here is more info about the Chat App Service from Chatwing, it's really the only service on the web that makes this possible: http://chatwing.com/site/chat-app-builder
