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.

Space Ship Building & Simulation Games - Wow !

36 posts in this topic

Hello Eveyone, I just checked my website analytics and saw a traffic from here, this is the first time someone has posted about Universe Edge on a forum! It feels good! Thanks Shippou! and thanks for the interest everyone!

 

I am estimating around 9 to 11 months of development time to reach Alpha stage, so there's still a long way there.

But, I will be releasing a Teaser Trailer, probably in the middle of next month.

It will be featuring a lot of ships! and I am wondering if you guys would be interested to build some ships to be used on the Trailer,

I will be able to share a minimal build of the game for ship building purposes. The problem is I won't be able to compensate for your efforts, the best thing I can offer is to put you in the credits of the Trailer. If you are interested, please PM me :-)

 

Also, the I will be uploading the Progress #2 Video of the game on Monday, It will show more about the Crew and Equipments in the game.

 

And for the link list , I found this on IndieDB a few days ago > http://www.indiedb.com/games/avorion , it is a spaceship-building game too!

Probably better more Starbound to the 'playable' list, seeing as I have been playing it all week ;)
