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.

for a start, if ya doin a HL mod, goto www.valve-erc.com , secondly, NO ONE AT ALL, wants a bloody mod with Gordan Freeman, honastly, make a really really good story line, with nothin to do with GORDAN, Black Mesa..... make a total conversion....

If u make a very good story, u might have some luck,...

As soon as i read GORDAN FREEMAN, i said, no chance... if u mention that name on vlave-erc in mod, they will think u r a real arsehole, hehe, good luck with whatever u do anyway

well, ever played opposing force, the sequel mod to the original? i think it''d be awesome for gordon freeman to meet shepard (i dont remember if thats his exact name...)

to be able to choose between the charecters in co-op missions given to them by the g-man, where the story / game path will vary depending on which charecter chosen...

just an idea

Shepard dies anyway, he gets left in the middle of nowhere, 4eva...
A co-op mod would be ok
but get away from Freeman, there are too many Freeman mods... and they all suk
make up ya own characters, and own story... and make it an "exciting Mod"

WHAT DO U DO ANYWAY (map, model, code...)
........

GMAN- thats just worryin me, if any of u have played Redemption mod, and the gman gave u "stuff to do"... that sucked

if i come up with any good ideas, i''ll post em
