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.

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.

  2.   Thank you! It's really nice to hear that it looks pleasing! :)   If you're curious to know what's been going on recently: We now have yet another background ready!         In addition to this, you might notice that our fine mob here is wearing a fedora. You might ask why. Well, it was carried by the chilly mountain winds and it happened to land on his head. Other possible explanation is that the player has amazing fashion sense and placed it there.. Yes, we have equipable head items working now! :)   And as always, leave comments, feedback and questions below!
  3. The progress has been smooth and you might be already familiar with the desert background from the previous screenshots.

  12. [quote name='fightergear' timestamp='1333474151' post='4927935'] Looks very cute, and I like the idea behind the game it's unique. Hope others feel the same way, can't wait to give a go. I take it that the slime's are bad and the other characters are your defense plushies, post up when it launches. Do you have a set release date yet? [/quote] Hello! Thanks for the comment! You got it right, the plushies are your defensive assets and there's a variety of different monsters including the slimes. We have a set release date, but because of the verification process we have to go through, the actual release will be a few days later. At the moment all I can say is that the game will surely be released within 2 weeks. I recommend you to follow our page at www.facebook.com/teedeegame or https://twitter.com/#!/TeedeeGame ! That way you can instantly know when the game has been released & you will receive other kinds of important updates aswell. =] Thank you for your interest in the game, we hope you have a great time!
