The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

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.

Personal Information

  1. Over 13 first-class 3D model-collections were released within the last five years by Pure3D. Reaching from ground plants, rocks and stones up to dead or desert trees the 3D assets were featured in lots of smaller and bigger games. This month brings another 25% voucher to catch one of them. :)     Just go shopping and enter PURE3D-25 during checkout. Offer is valid for two weeks. ;) Link: www.3d-game-models.com

  3. New: Vegetation Configurator! After some while of preperation I'm happy to unveil the new vegetation configurator on Pure3D. It is really simple! Sometimes you need very special plants for your project or get busy with your project or funds are limited to hire a full-time artist. This is where you can use the Pure3D art configurator. You just select the type of model - at the moment CG and game-models are supported - add some other needed options like textures or LoD, upload some pictures and/or informative text and after check-out your tree will be created be Pure3D. You will even save 30% of the total amount if you are okay with a resale on the web. Basically it is as easy as buying a DELL computer. Check it via the "custom" section on the shop or just go here: http://shop.pure3d.de/custom-3d-tree-vegetation-service/150-custom-3d-tree-model-service.html 25% Discount til sunday + price-drops! Also the shop got some love! You will now have a more structurized and colored visual leading, the CSS has been made a bit better and the check-out is also more clean. There are also plans for more enhancements on the shop of course. Good news all collections dropped one euro. But the medieval and afghan environment dropped both to only 44e. It's a steal for this amount of assets and quality. Until this happens enjoy the monthly discount days and just enter the following 25% voucher at check-out and it will be deducted from the totals: PURE3D-NOV25 See you at: http://www.3d-game-models.com Watch the newsletter: http://eepurl.com/IMqkf
  4. My latest release “Dead Trees” brings 30 game-art tree models to your game. It is the 13th release now. It also includes additional 30 low-poly versions of each tree with a 50% reduction to make them useable as a LoD model or main-mesh for mobile game developing  leaving you with a total of 60 assets.      Like all other Pure3D collections the Dead Trees collection fits well into style and delivers a high-quality. The main models are closed meshes to give great  close-up details. From detailed high-poly meshes baked 2D branches polish the trees up.    As usually there are several file formats like: max (2010), dae, fbx, obj, 3ds, ls3 (Lumion)   See a movie with all models and different possibilities to use here:    http://youtu.be/h-LiZpxwrJI   Get the model collection for just 20 bucks there:  http://shop.pure3d.de/151-30-dead-trees-game-models.html
  5. Today I released a new cutting-edge model collection for your fine game developer guys. It's called DesertHD (already the 12th collection!) and fits 100% to RocksHD. It covers 20 desert-styled vegetation models based on real specimen. From small cactus up to large leaf trees there is all in this pack which lets you creat ea great desert theme. This time I focused on realism, rendered out realistic branches and did high-quality trunks without stuck branches at the bottom. With .max (2010), .dae, .fbx, .obj and .3ds formats it should be no problem to get the models into any game-engine. So, pictures and movies tell more than 1000 words so here are the last words: Introduction discount is 20% until 6.Oct.2013 if you use one of the 15 vouchers at checkout. It applies on all collections of course. The shop link: http://shop.pure3d.de/148-deserthd-3d-model-game-collection.html The video: http://youtu.be/FsjEqm0ythc The images (all real-time):

  13. After the great success of the RocksHD I decided to do the requested low-poly edition called RocksMOBILE. RocksMOBILE features 35 rock models including different geological types like sandstone, greystone, edged rocks, large formations and even dark lava rocks. It's aimed 100% to mobile game-developers which are in need of AAA quality game assets. Like usual lots of common model formats are supported: .max (2010), .fbx (2009), .obj, .3ds, .dae (OpenCollada) Also textures included in the .fbx for easy drag&drop functionality plus .dds 512 normal,diffuse and specular setup. Every rocks weights around 200 triangles each and comes with 512px textures. Not even the triangles are light but also the price with only 15 Euros.

  14. What a month! The second model-pack in February hits the road on my small model store while still celebrating the 2nd annyversary of Pure3d Visualizations. RocksHD features 35 rock models including different geological types like sandstone, greystone, edged rocks, large formations and even dark lava rocks. It's aimed mainly at game-developers but also useable for all other people in the 3D field of course. Each rock has been hand-crafted in Zbrush with also painted 2048px textures made from then high-poly bake including normals, AO and Cavity. The textures are seamless which means you can rotate each rock in any angle without looking at nasty edges or texture seams giving you all artistic freedom your project deserves. Like usual lots of common model formats are supported: .max (2010), .fbx (2009), .obj, .3ds, .dae (OpenCollada) and .gmf (Leadwerks) Also textures included in the .fbx for easy drag&drop functionality plus .dds 2048px normal,diffuse and specular setup.
