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.

Game Maker Idea for Workshop or Community Item based

7 posts in this topic

Firstly, going to say "Hi!" to the community. Isn't or Doesn't a great idea, a Game Maker game (especially Windows and Mobile Android or iOS too!) (especially too "Studio"s) came up with a workshop? (Hey, don't steal my idea, or if you ask me to make it to your game, any engine probaly, go ahead!) Okay, the procedure work like this (the non coded or compiled yet!), the user/community maker submit their work to your e-mail or your official team email, then, also came up with item name and descreption +pricing and special feature (like disguising maybe, or extra coins or cashes), after you or team receive the e-mail, (I recommend using, oh! Plus the character sprites too +walking animation, but faster way, give'em template like hand or gun holding pose and you make an invisible object moving along the arena with the character, work with enemy too! for invisiblity one, but that's okay! ;) If you want ;), hehe!) Ummmm, what's next? Ah! Make a selection! Where should be added to game and where's not (possiblity due to non suitable art for your game, or... pricing too expensive, but in my game, it should be greater than 200 and not bigger than 10000 (ten thousand), cause that's too expensive, I think, for non-powerful weapon, so whatever!) Or other reason, maybe, hehe...

 

 

Okay, any sugestion or silly idea are pleased and welcomed, and also please Up vote me! Thanks! Okay, almost forget! Boo! It work with custom taunt (based on engine you used, I'm using custom sound and frame, up to 2-10 or arround 19 to 20) ...skip! Oh, and weapon and cosmetic item (can be clothes and reskin too!). Community map maybe? Or anything, and if your engine supported, trade! YEah trade system! Or, someone selling items (pricing is up to user or player) and online maps, or feature, or trade for custom arena or enemy (of course, their community maked, map). Anything your genre (online or offline) this should work, as if you have good hype or fame (otherwords, fans, yeah).

 

I hope this article (I hope I post in the right thingy, I mean, section!) should help you boost your sale or feature, but I think feature like this should be online mobile game rather than PC or console, doesn't know if this work on 3d too! But in case, this should boost your 2d game, mostly. But not pixelated one or whatever! Need your support by +1-ing my post, so I can maybe write a good article like this (should post this too) Oh, and mostly shooter and RPG game whould be awsome! See you if your game's done! ;) hehe! Uhhh, anything could be I should know? Oh, and about my game character, but no! Not here too! Should post in other thing, I mean post! Okay, thanks! Good night, game Frostier (or Froster), just my, our game company/group/team name!

 

EDIT:

 

Oh, and almost forget! The compiled code one! Explained below in this EDIT: #1

 

This is my experience using GML, maybe there are some refference to other game programming language, because that is normal! Thanks...

//It's not real javascript, just kinda like them, it's pure GML (Game maker Language)
//This step is the compiled one, maybe it's easier for you if you are a lone programmer
//too!
//Okay, here we goes!

var /*your item here*/, game_item_name //or simply item_name or whatever!
/*your item goes here*/ = game_item_name

//Oh, and also, I'm quite noobs about coding, so sorry! You can delete this thing!
//Just letting you know, this too!

//Your item name goes here, it should be like this:
//obj_your_item_name (without // is okay, but it's recommended!)
var game_price //or simply your currecy (or whatever) name!
var game_item_display, /*or ; so skip this!*/ game_sprites, game_icon_shop,
//You can also declare your own variable! But this is the most common!
//Eh, my english look good, isn't it? Ah, don't worry, I'm better at school than other!

item_name          == //Optional! or, game_item_name, it's based on var above
game_price         == //your_price goes or belong here! oh, or use single = if failed 
                     //at compiling, just as you know!                 
game_icon_shop     == //should goes like this spr_your_sprites
game_sprites       == //Like something at battlefield, +walking animation, optional too
game_display name  == //Just for shopping thing, you may ...skip! this
game_extra_frame   == //If multiple sprites is used, should goes like this:
                      //spr_item1, or ; spr_item2, etc
game_extra_feature == //Just like poison effect, or particle, it's up to you too
game_projectile    == //especially for shooter game, for non shooter game, maybe just
                      //for particle usage like "whink" or "boink!" or you may rename it

//End of the stats, althought or althrough you may add your custom variable below:
//=================================================================================
//Custom variable, if any

//game_custom_variable == //value goes or belong here

//End of custom variable,
//=================================================================================
//EDIT:
//Custom variable are designed and recommended for someone that need the custom item
//could be useful too for uhh, weapon scrolling, specially for RPG and shooter game!
//Oh, right! These code are belong to me! With exeption custom variable!
//Please if you use this (with edits too!), credit me! "Adi Satria" or just "can2x"
//in your game! Or, give me donation so I can make more useful code for compile like
//this (or these)! Oh, and for custom variable(s) don't forget to declare them in
//var thingy, thanks through this is EDIT: #2, in code! Aw hehoho!
//
//Method of contacting me:
//
//>GD.net account = ("hehe, here> can2x)"
//>Facebook       = ("Adi Satria, so far as this written it's SR4 logo")
//>Gmail          = ("robotrocket11@gmail.com or gamefrost@gmail.com - registering!")
//>Anyother? Ah!
//>IndieDB        = ("As can2x, it's ModDB, don't know if that's worked too")
//>Or by... SMS   = ("Not recommended, and I'm not giving you guy my number!")
//>Soon, Skype    = ("Could be as GameFrost, or Frostier")
//>Oh, right maybe our own databases I hope, so far still using my "Ultimate Game book
// available in "Meet the Team" video through my personal channel, or our Officials,

All good thing came up from the gods, with their or your own religy, (not the wrong thing one!) And all mistake (not all, hehe) came up from me!

EDIT:

 

Okay it's now pure edited 3 time so it's hastag #3, just edit some error on code, so steady on! Oh, crap! Which part? I forget, should find it! Steady on!

Hey, don't steal my idea

 

Ideas are plentiful and useless.  Implementation of an idea is rare.  There is nothing to steal here.

 

 

 


Damn, no offense but I have a really hard time understanding what you are talking about.

 

Me, too.  I'm almost certain that trying to understand it will confuse me more.  If your interpretation is correct:

 

 

 


Basicaly you are asking users to send you by mails items for your game, and you would pay them.

 

I smell either a scam or a waste of time.

 

 

 


EDIT:

Okay it's now pure edited 3 time so it's hastag #3, just edit some error on code, so steady on! Oh, crap! Which part? I forget, should find it! Steady on!

Oh, right got this from nowhere but my silly thinking (but now I'm thinking about Pyroland with some creepy cute Unicorn, oh no!)

"Sit tight, hold on! Deep breath! Ready on! We're going! So, what!!???"

 

What is happening here?  I feel I've entered the Black Lodge in Twin Peaks and this is all symbolic information about future events.

 

 

 


People will +1-ing, as you said, your post if they find it useful.

 

And I did not.
