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.

C / C ++ Game Development (Beginner)

10 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Past 6 months I've been into C / C ++ programming while I have pretty big experience in HTML / JavaScript and PHP.

 

I m very impressed by C and C ++ and I would like to focus on it and probably continue and stick with it.

 

I would like to start with some basics about game programming and I would like to know if there is anyone who is interested in joining me and helping out with it.

 

I've also created a site called C Plus Plus Lab (www.cpluspluslab.com) so It can help me with communication and such.

If you are interested to study together and even start a together project, add my skype: ag-webstudio or you can also register at the link I provided above.

 

Cheers!

We are currently looking for talented object 2D designer. You don't need to be professional, actually you can be a beginner just as long you will work hard and cooperate with us.

 

Currently we are working on our first game and we don't need the graphics yet but we would like to find a person that we can count in advance, also a guy with graphical solutions and stuff. 

 

We are focusing on OpenSource applications and therefor we would like to know person who is good with Blender or any other openSource solution.

Spine is also one really great tool for object design but I m afraid it's a premium application.

 

Cheers!

I'm interested in C++ game development as well.  I have been working on building some of my own stuff and understand most of the stuff, but am having issues understanding/conceptualizing how it will all fit together and work with each other.

 

Definitely interested in doing something with a group though to get some experience.

it looks like a lot of people are interested, if the op doesn't want a large group (all of the people interested) then i'd like to make a 2nd related group, perhaps all interconnected working on 2 separate projects?
