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. 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.

What language? I got a 100% on my linked list assignment for college in JAVA And now I know c++ *blush*. You could say I'm a "master" at linked lists. Well, any and all data structures, really. I rawk!

Email me at bctorvik@yahoo.com if you want an example that will rock your socks off!! (maybe it won't...)

EDIT: Why do people say what they edited?? Well, I will too! I accidentally spelled "lists" as "listed." OOPS!

Did you use the built-in Linked List class in the java API?

you make a dynamic list of something.
For example, if you are makeing a chat server and there will be a large number of people logging on and off over a relatively short period of time, you would use a linked list. That way, you could add people and remove people quickly without having to shuffle an array.

Arrays are great if you know exactly where in you collection you have something.

Linked Lists are best when you have to keep things sorted and you have to add and remove things from the middle of the list.
