      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.

Do you need help with your game fonts? I have a red, and blue one, like in your game, when your the blue guy vs. the red guys! Your game is nice. Are you adding a death voice? i.e. Auuuuuuuugh!

No, but thanks for offering! The version we released is final (unless we encounter some serious bugs, then we''ll patch it up). We do not plan on making any changes to it.

However, if the demand is there, then we might consider working on a better version of IBF (hmm.. 3d?).

Deshawn, I asked this on another thread... if these are your fonts you keep offering (after all, you once said you were GREAT with fonts), then how come you have a US email address and the creator of the fonts is from Sweden? If you admit these are not your fonts, could you please stop trying to pass them off as such and give credit where it''s due?

Anybody wishing to see where these fonts are coming from should look at http://www.algonet.se/~guld1/freefont.htm.

I''ll have to agree with Kylotan...
And it really bugs when I read a post and in every each one of them I see a message like "I can make a font for you if you wan''t. I''m VERY super duper mega good at making fonts."

Come on, mates. No need to argue over some silly old fonts. It''s inhumane.

Oh, yeah, Staffan. Surely that post "I can help with the font" gets repetive, but I''m just trying to help people. It sure dosen''t "bug" the people who I ask it to. I''m sure if you were the one getting helped, it wouldn''t "bug" you. Dilgo, the fonts aren''t silly. I''m just upset, because I was accused of font theft. Then they go, and give away the link to the page trying to be "Mr. Hero". I hate it when that happens, and I make furious posts, like that one above in the red. I''m short-tempered, but I keep the critical insults to myself.
That is all.

Perhaps it''s just me but I do find them annoying. I''m almost sure I''m not the only one...
Now seeing it once or twice, thats okay. But I''ve seen a bit more often..like 10+ times.

So if they are not your fonts, then what do you do with them that makes you so good? And good at what?

no offense, but gromit, maybe you should watch your nasty approach. Deshawn, you should cool it. Give Kylotan a break.
