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. Ok I 'll read opengl documents and I'll tell you if I have some results Thanks thanks thanks...But I have another question...Why color of ray in the sphere aren't how I want it? Ray are striped lines and I used glcolormaterial because glcolor doesn't work...But this error come only when I add textures...
  2. Any hint to implement a pseudo-glass effect with material color? I want to have effect light on my sphere like a glass and can I have alpha blending on sphere to view rear sphere...With my known of fixed function I don't really now how can I get this pseudo-effect Any guide? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I'm a beginner with opengl, I'm making a plasma sphere in opengl, i have a problem with a glass effect...i don't understand how i can have that effect, I suppose that I must work on material illumination property, but I don't know how it is possible because haven't idea how I can edit this parameter in opengl...Can you explain me how i must use to have this effect? My second question is why when I insert a texture materials colors change and I can't have the effect that I want. I attach a image of my sphere. I want to have the glass effect on trasparent sphere. (I used alpha blending to do it); If you need I can insert my code. To make all object I used quadric with glu (also to map the texture I used gluQuadricTexture, but background is inserted normally with texture position on screen position). I use OpenGL with C programming language. [attachment=4466:Schermata 2011-07-21 a 22.36.21.png]
