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.

Does anyone know of any MODs that have been finished? Whats the deal with getting hold of one, are they sold or just downloaded off the net? Ive seen several brilliant looking ones recently (esp Halflife and Quake MODS) but have never met anyone who has ever played one (?). Cheers, Jon

Go to www.planethalflife.com They will have links to finished and downloadable mods.

PC Gamer puts Half-Life or UT mods on their magazine CD from time to time.

You can go to the store and buy counter-strike - which is a half-life mod.

I've played about 50 HL mods, mostly single player. They Hunger, USS Darkstar, Todesangst, Assault on Roswell, Case Closed, and many others. But I do play some multiplayer mods too (CS, TFC, DoD).

I don't believe you've never met a person who's played a mod before, you must not know very many people. Why don't you try making your own mod?

yeah, about all I play is mods. Take Tribes 2 for instance, I don''t like the game, but a mod came out call Base that corrected everyone''s complaints, and it''s great. Counter-Strike is a mod. Urban Terror is one of the best for Q3.
