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.

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.

  1. Well its a empty question really (1) maybe you should start by shedding some light on how you plan to make such a service (2) how you plan for a user to view content (3) what share in the profits would you give to content creators (4) how do you plan on targeting all these platforms? especially IOS?    You shouldnt really be posting nothing to your announsements then expect people to give you an answer if they would upload their games to your service. I wish the best of luck to you but i dont think this broad concept will get you very far.
  2. im stuck at the loading screen since i cant read the language i cant tell you the problem, the screen shot looks good. 
  3. [quote name='Serapth' timestamp='1335987885' post='4936871'] I am kinda shocked at the lack of PS Suite threads on GameDev.net, I would have thought this would be something the community would have jumped all over! [/quote] Because sony are a joke of a company it has taken them how long? To jump on the indie development band wagon and for what because their platforms are failing and they are getting desperate but yet they still wont open the ps3? Everything sony do is half arsed i mean look at the state of their developer site this is a company that could of had it all but they decided not to keep paying for the exclusives titles they had! They let the cunsumer down so much in so many areas that i wouldnt waste my time making a game for them.
  4. Dead island was painful i really looked forward to that game but it disappointed me in so many ways i never bothered to compete it.
  5. Iv been using torque 2d over the past few months its a 2d engine simple to use supports win/mac and itorque for ios, its script based but you get the full source code too tinker with.
  6. I spoke to a tech support guy yesterday and he was very helpful, iv been watching the tornado twins unity on youtube very helpful check them out!
  7. Iv been sent two different serial numbers and not one of them works, do u think its a problem at my end?
  8. Has anyone had any experience with clickteam products games factory, multimedia fusion?
  9. Has anyone had any experience with clickteam products games factory, multimedia fusion?
  10. When i was a younger i loved making games with click and create now click team have made it possible to convert multi media fusion projects for ios has anyone tried this? Is it somthing thats only worth doing with "mini" games is it worth using mmf to create a big project? whats the compatibility like would i have long loading times, frame rate issues ect?
  11. Yeah i understand that to be honest there is so much hype for a big disappointment i get that this is a game dev site however i just had to post it somewhere really thought i was on to somthing i believe this site has made a mistake lets pretend it a database issue so we can discuss it.
