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.

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.

Would it be inappropriate to Rickroll her by engraving "Never gonna give you up" into the ring?

Proposals are big deals to women. She might end up feeling hurt badly and dump you.

 

However, do it, and let us know how it goes :D

E: Why do you need a ring?  Most places of the world don't. DeBeers popularized the fad about 50 years ago in US and parts of Europe to sell diamonds, but whatever.

I got away without an engagement ring. Saved myself a few thousand dollars! I mean... I don't support the blood diamond industry.

Okay, I have a better idea. Similar to what this guy did...

However instead of building in LEDs, all you have to do is embed an RFID into the ring which when near an NFC phone will launch this.

 

Considering the ring is on her hand at exactly the right spot, it should launch every time she picks up her phone!

That is an awesome idea. Yes. Do this.

 

On a serious note, she might see the ring and think it's all a joke and you don't mean it if you rick roll her with it.

I heard once the entire diamond industry is a hoax, diamonds that cost millions are suppose to cost a few dollars, and the only motive it persist is that theres always idiots to buy those things

Nah I suggest you do what I did. Build a terrarium, but a giant tarantula in it and perch the ring inside on the sand. Then if she really loves you she'll get it. Exception here being my wife loves spiders

Most women would probably not consider someone rickrolling them during proposal as mature enough. Or someone even thinking about doing such a thing, for that matter.

 

On the other hand, my proposal back then was "You know, we could save a lot of tax if we were married, since we live together as if married anyway, and such... you, know", and this worked.

It really depends, if you're willing to marry her, you must know (I really hope so) a lot her, about how she fells and what she finds funny or of a bad taste. What are your feelings telling you ?

dude, once she has said yes you can rick roll her a lot more. Put it in your vows!

 

"I vow to never give you up and to never ever hurt you. I promise to never run around without you or desert you"

 

say it really slowly, all the geeks in the church will be chuckling.

 

lock her in first!
