      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.

  1. Introduction: Hello there, my name is Ivan Mandi?, I'm developing a game with Unity game engine. I'm not the only one on the project, I'm just the only developer. (Programming, art, game design)  Nenad Markovi? is the one who made this possible, without him I would not be able to work full time on this. Matej Štajduhar is helping with everything not directly related to the development.  Davor Šimunovi? will be responsible for sound and music.   About the project: Nucleotide is a single player action-adventure in development. We are trying to create one development diary every week to show of the progress, all videos are available on our YouTube channel.  First video features a cube collecting spheres, so yes, we started doing this from the beginning of development.    You can check the latest development diary [no. 12]: Here;   Latest screenshot ( Scene created for the development diary 12)       Thank you for your time, I hope that you have some comments and questions.
  2. This entire game was developed in less than six hours. It was made as a joke, for fun, enjoy! Don't you just hate it when you have a shitty day, and there's no douchebags around to punch? Cry no more, little bitch. We found a solution. SUPERDOUCHEBAG: Suckerpunch A lifetime of emotions in less than six hours of creation. A mind-thrilling point'n'click survival horror/dramma game parabole to mankind's race with time. Download it now, for free. Avilable for Linux, MacOS and Windows.   Download page   Trailer
  3. That is the function that I need. Thanks. (MSDN ftw ;)) Quote:Original post by szecs And maybe I misunderstood something, but this text uses glRasterPos, so translation don't have effect (or does it?, I'm not sure) It's not working on the same way but the effect is the same :)
  4. Quote:Original post by SuperVGA If you locate the text above the position in the upper-left corner, it wouldn't be visible. Exactly. So one way to make it work is to calculete offset(font high in pixels). A problem is in the fact that I do not know how to calculate right font high in pixels.
  5. I did setup glOrtho on the right way, so if I translate 2D object on the position (0,0) he will be renderd in the upper left corner of the screen. That isn't the problem. The problem is that when I set a position Y (with glTranslatef) text sets just above that position,and not underneath. I could make offset but the problem is that I do not know how to calculate the hight of letters in pixels.
  6. @SuperVGA I'm working on a Game engine. And my goal is to make things work in any cases,doing things that way isn't so smart.
  7. The problem is only that the font height does not apply to pixels. p.s. I'm not stupid,and I do know math...
  8. This is in the section OpenGL so what do you think that I'm using? -_- Title says : "Bitmap font text". (I'm creating font just like NeHe in this tutorial http://nehe.gamedev.net/data/lessons/lesson.asp?lesson=13) The problem is that when I set a position Y (with glTranslatef) text sets just above it, not underneath. Does someone knows how to fix this? Thanks.
  9. Hello. I am drawing the text in the orthogonal projection but I am troubled by the fact that the text is positioned by its lower left corner, how can I make positioning by the upper left corner of the string itself?
  10. Hello. How can I pitch,yaw and roll objects matrix(4x4) around arbitrary axis. For example I know how to rotate object around it's local axis using quaternions. In other words I want to do the same thing only use different local axis. Thanks
  11. I began to lose hope at the moment ;) I've found a tutorial but I was interested in other people's feedback. Thanks :)
  12. Hello. Is it just me or is glSelectBuffer() really slow as hell? What do you think about the "Color coding" method? Thanks.
  13. Thanks for your help :)
  14. I assumed taht. Do you have finished function for inverting 4x4 matrix? And do you recommend using matrix directly for the camera? (or maybe to convert it to Euler/Angle Axis representation+Position)
  15. Hello. I have a problem with glMultMatrix. Example: // ... glMultMatrixf(Camera.Matrix);//Everything is inverse ... glPushMatrix(); glMultMatrixf(Object.Matrix);//Works fine ... glPopMatrix(); ... What do I need to do with matrix to make it work for camera? Thanks.
