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. thanks i will have a look at that. so basically i just want to have some 3d objects that interact with each other. but they interact with each other differently, depending on the type of object. eg if you a cube hits a sphere, it bounces off. if the cube hits a cube, it goes through it. how would i do this?<div><br></div><div><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(28, 40, 55); font-size: 11px; line-height: 16px; ">do u think this will be a very hard task for someone who has only really read up on basic stuff on openGL? (such as just chapters 1-3 on the redbook, and just nehe lessons 1-5)?&nbsp;</span></div>
  2. okay...but is there any tutorials i can find on this? i really don tknow much about openG. just how to draw some cubes etc from the nehe tutorials. if there is a tutorial with code examples that would be great!
  3. <div>I am trying to get 3D objects to move and interact with each other. They will collide and move in other directions when such a collusion occurs. How would I go about doing this?</div><div><br></div>
  4. [quote name='glut_user' timestamp='1304918001' post='4808378']<br />Hi everyone,<br /><br />I have been using freeglut and simply replacing the &quot;#include &lt;gl\glaux,h&quot; with glut.h instead and also the linker to freeglut. It all worked fine until lesson 06.<br /><br />I really want to be able to learn the rest of the tutorials as i need this for a project. But I am only allowed to use freeglut. So my question is, how can we modify lesson 6 and the lessons after that easily to use glut instead of glaux? is it possible? any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!<br />[/quote]<br /><br /><br /> never mind i found this http://www.gamedev.net/topic/275238-gluax-replacement-code/ and it fixes it. although i dont know what the glaux replacement code was usefull for then? coz thats seperate?
