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.

  2. Hello I am Discount_Flunky My team has finally made the first episode of Death Note abridged. All things considered I think it's very good for a first episode. I know that there are a lot of DNA versions out there (most never get past the first episode), but I feel ours is very unique. Plus most DNA series our absolute crap. Most of the time they literally copy the original script almost line by line. Feedback is strongly appreciated, however let me spare you form having to report the obvious. I am well aware that there are several lines were you can hear mic cracking sounds and I also know that certain lines are way to quiet. It's all our mics fault. The thing is so fickle it's scary. I think if we got a better mic the quality of our work would double (at least). In fact if anyone could recommend a quality microphone model that's cost $100 dollars or less it would be greatly appreciated. Here's the link.

I'm also considering doing it with live action shows.
