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.

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.

framerate (from top-left): 58 (Celeron 466 VoodooII something..)

Quite a polished appearance for an experimental little subproject.. Visual quality: Good
... I did not like the sounds...

I have Pentium II 266, Ati Rage II+ 4MB, Voodoo 2 12 MB (but this game dont use it I think) and I had 58 fps.

The game itself isnt bad but sound should be better.

Hello Everybody!

Xtreme:
Make sure you execute the file in the same directory the bitmaps are on. Do not execute from winzip or such because i doesn''t decompress all files when you double click...just the exe. Debugging strings are in spanish..

Olek:
I am aware of that. I put some sounds because graphs only made it VERY monotonus. They are played using window''s PlaySound, wich is not very efficient I didn''t plan to put sounds on the project.

Thanks again!
