      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.

Where are all the Indie Games in development?

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I was wondering if everyone here could help me find and make a list of indie game developers

and indie games in development because it seems hard to actually find them in order to be able to

help them out with awesome music and ideas! Maybe there is a site that always has a list of games in development or something that would make it easier to actually get in touch with the creative people  in order to get together and make AWESOME games! 

 

Thanks!

If you are actually looking to work with indie developers by helping provide music for their apps, then a better option than trying to track them down and offer your services will likely be setting yourself up and letting them come to you.

Try browsing here. Mine is here. (I have a website here, and a game-specific website here, but the websites are rather defective and not currently at the top of my task list)

 

Do you have a link to your music available to listen to?

What are you actually offering, and at what prices?

You might also try tigsource.com - the forums there are very active, although a bit heavy on the "retro blocky oldschool chiptune" side. There are more sites like this one, but to my knowlegde there is no real list of active independent studios. I guess it's because many of them fail and many new ones form every month.

Thanx for the replies and suggestions thus far! I believe that the gaming community

should really focus on knowing what goes on by communicating about projects 

that aims for greatness so that they don't become lost dreams that never see the light of day.

And for those interested in our music we have made an add on this site here
