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.

  1. Predictions for tonight anyone? #brfc #mufc? 2 - 0 I say.
  2. Will be cheering on Newcastle like hell today!
  3. Another 2 - 0 win. We move above #lfc. Also, Sunderland are SHIT. You are 3 - 1 up against city and you manage to concede 2 late goals.
  4. Cahill for Victor. Good call from Moyes.
  5. After #EFC getting thrashed by #WBA last year at Goodison, I hope a revenge will put us above #LFC by the end of day. #bbcfootball
  6. ... have a 6pm kick off?! WTF?
  7. The 2 most attack minded players aren't gunna make it tonight. Let's hope the rest fill their boots. #coyb #efc
  8. 3 red cards, a penalty and 5 goals. great #oldfirm derby.
  9. Here are my files, I'm using SFML, so you'll need to relink SFML then run it. Most of the collision code is in the gameObject and main.cpp files. main - [url="http://pastie.org/3654696"]http://pastie.org/3654696[/url] player - [url="http://pastie.org/3654701"]http://pastie.org/3654701[/url] spriteManager - [url="http://pastie.org/3654702"]http://pastie.org/3654702[/url] gameObject - [url="http://pastie.org/3654708"]http://pastie.org/3654708[/url]
  10. Hay, I've got 3 blocks. One is moveable with WASD and the other 2 are non-moveable. They all have bounding boxes and I've programmed it so that when 2 shapes intersects the moveable block gets moved back based on the width and height of the intersection. This works perectly, but only if collides with 1 block. I hold the 2 non-moveable blocks inside a vector, then I'm looping through the vector and checking the collisions. I've got 3 images to illustrate my problem. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Hmhk8.png[/img] This shows the layout, the red block is moveable, basically I'm going to be heading in an up-left direction. Holding the W and A keys. [img]http://i.imgur.com/ROrJf.png[/img] This shows that the blocks collide correctly at this point, I am still holding W and A at this point. [img]http://i.imgur.com/ReIMU.png[/img] I am continuing to hold W and A but the red block no longer heads in that direction. It gets stuck here. The problem, i think, is that the 2 green blocks are arguing with repositioning the red block based on the intersection. How do I deal with this? Is there any example code I can look at to help me with this problem?
