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.

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.

then i tried to draw it nomraly in 100*100 px but AA made it so horrible sad.png

 

can i use brush tool without AA ?

 

and is there a way to draw in 100*100 px like drawing in 1800*1400 px (i mean the pixels arent visible) ?

You might want to change your interpolation type when adjusting the image size (drop down box in the Image Size menu) Bicubic or Bicubic Sharper will probably produce the best results. (you'll get straight lines, but they'll be much lighter - you can then darken the image and increase its contrast to make it look more like the original black lines.)

 

Alternatively you can redraw it in the smaller size with the line tool (it has a checkbox to turn off AA) or the pencil tool which will let you draw one pixel at a time.

Try this.

  • Fill that shape with a flat color;
  • Scale it down to 100x100;
  • Make a selection out of that shape (it's CTRL + Click on layer in the layers list); 
  • Create a new layer;
  • Make a stroke on that new layer (it's Edit -> Stroke) using that selection and a black color. Test out different width settings along with alignments (inside, center or outside).

I would create this image (the cube in this case) in a vector graphics program such as Inkscape and resize it before converting to or in another program which supports vector to raster conversions like GIMP.  Once you get used to the workflow pipeline, using one vector program and another raster program in this way is quick and easy.

 

For very advanced work, I make a cube or other 3D object in a 3D program and rendered with lighting effects and fine anti-aliasing, perhaps super-sampling, then take a screenshot of it already in the correct size.  After getting the experience, both these methods take me about the same amount of time for simple shapes or images.
