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.

Opinions on what specifically?

 

 

I take it you speak/write English as a second language?  You might want to have a native speaker proof-read the text on your homepage; there are some small spelling and grammatical errors that make the page seem less professional.

 

To me, the page also seems a little hard on the eyes with the semi-transparent background and choice of colours.

 

 

It also isn't overly clear exactly what you actually offer.  If people have to investigate to find out whether or not your product is what they're after, you'll lose a lot of them before they even consider your product -- the homepage should describe what is actually being offered in detail.

 

Given you own a domain name, it would be more professional to set up an @animatlas contact email address rather than using a gmail one.

To me, the page also seems a little hard on the eyes with the semi-transparent background and choice of colours.

 

Thanks again.

Some changes maked. Is it better now? And what your opinion, is it will be in demand? Or this idea is inherently bad?

 

Thanks.
