      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. 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 Music Designs

I''ve been taking time to create some Music for a classic 2D RPG (like the superninendo''s ChronoTrigger, Zelda, and such) I was wondering if people could give me some feedback on whether or not the music i''m creating is fit for it. Go to http://mp3.com/king/ and check it out if you have time. The one I truely created for the game is called "Amazement", and I made one for a preview, called "The Heathen Preview". P.S. our game is called Heathen and you can find more about it by going to http://www.cfxweb.net/mxf/ Any feedback to this post or Email at king171@hotmail.com would be appreciated. Thanks

Hhmmm...my first thought, during the first 2 or 3 seconds of Amazement, was YES! Very nice, however, I''m not sure if I think that your music fits in with the screen shots I''ve seen. Ok, I haven''t played the game, so I can''t be sure though. If I''m allowed to get deep then I beleive that the colour in the screenshots was to bright for your music...but that of course is only my point of view. Maybe more SF.

I liked The Heathen Preview, more like a title score maybe. Can''t help to notice the "evil" in the "background", now I''m getting deep again, sorry about that. Reminds me of a game called Astec Challange for the C64 (don''t know if that''s a complement, but anyway... )

That''s all I can say about it now looking on those screenshots and listening to your music. Hope I wasn''t to hard on you...

I''ve added 5 more songs, for those of you who care, to my list. If you havent heard, I''ve been creating music for a classic 2d RPG game that is suppose to go for different themes, i''ve created about 15 songs and more to come. The point of this post is to get feedback on the music, just to see if anyone thinks that its good for a game or not. Please don''t be afraid to tell me that its no good, it will only help. To hear the music go to http://mp3.com/king/, to hear the music. Thanks a bunch.
