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. 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.

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. Hi there, my puzzle game named Ciphertext is now available on AppStore. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. 3 out of 5 stars from appadvice.com "…This game is about as basic as it gets. With computer-terminal-like graphics, no sound, and easy gameplay, this couldn’t be any more bare bones. Yet it’s the strategy and subtle hints dropped along the way that provide the challenge. …" "Such a cool idea to make a version of minesweeper. Pooping is more fun now!" -????? "If you enjoy the puzzle logic of minesweeper, you're in for a real treat with this one. Same fun base, but rebooted and surprisingly modern and slick." -???? Move to the adjacent safe square/s using the information based on the number of mines around you. Use your logic and memory to complete 40 unique levels. Can't find a way out? Use your abilities: move diagonally or meditate to get detailed information about number of mines around you. There a portals to make things harder too! Push the limits of your memory by adjusting the difficulty level. Collect clues by completing levels and try to decrypt the ciphertext.
