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.

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.

Rapture - World Conquest: New Trailer

1 post in this topic

We've made a new trailer for Rapture - World Conquest, coming soon for iOS,  We should be hitting soft launch within a week or two and hope to release worldwide in September!

It's like a super fast real-time Risk with sprinklings of Civilization, Populous, Mega-Lo-Mania and Galcon. If the timer-based monetisation systems have put you off Godus, maybe this will scratch that itch!

"Unlike other strategy games it gets your mind racing, reacting to what's happening, and before you realise it's all over and you're raring to go again." - Pocket Gamer

====================

====================

Rapture - World Conquest is a fast paced real-time strategy game that puts you in the celestial shoes of a jealous god. Guide your followers through the ages and vanquish the unbelievers in the surrounding kingdoms. Send your armies to take over regions and expand your realm.

As your followers rise in numbers their adulation will provide mana allowing you to unleash devastating miracles – lightning storms, hurricanes, floods and other death from above. Conquer the globe and as the supreme deity you will lift your people up to heaven and leave your remaining enemies to the apocalypse.

Should you risk all on military engagements? On science and technical achievements? Or improve farming to boost productivity? Or perhaps your followers should spend their time praising you, giving you the power to unleash more miracles.

Inspired by classic god games such as Civilization and Populous, reinvented for short match times on mobile. There are dozens of missions, achievements and unlockable content.

You are a jealous god, wipe out the minions of your rivals, conquer the world and rapture your people.
