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. DirectX SDK is installed btw
  2. I give up
  3. "CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:13 (find_package): By not providing "FindDirectX.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "DirectX", but CMake did not find one. Could not find a package configuration file provided by "DirectX" with any of the following names: DirectXConfig.cmake directx-config.cmake Add the installation prefix of "DirectX" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "DirectX_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "DirectX" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!" What should I do?
  4. Its saying install FreeType, how do I do that?
  5. Also I've tried many generators such as VS and makefiles but none of them work.
  6. Im struggling to build Ogre 3D. I made a Folder called Ogre 3D sources in the VS SDK folder. The ogre folder includes ogre_src_v1-8-1, freetype-2.4.10 and cmake-2.8.9-win32-x86 also a empty folder called Build Dir. I opened cmake - gui and put this for source code: C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)/Ogre3D Source/ogre_src_v1-8-1 and put the empty folder Build Dir for where to build binaries. When I configure and generate, there is only errors. Any help?
  7. alright, i'll try building from source.
  8. I was about to download the Ogre 3D SDK, then I saw it was all 32 bit. Is there a SDK that is 64 bit? If not please inform me of a 64 bit rendering engine that has good physics and graphics also you can use C++ for it. Thanks
  9. I will be modifying ogre3d
  10. Currently, I am thinking of making/modifying a game engine using C++, DirectX, Ogre3D and Impulse-based dynamic simulation(physics sdk not sure to use). Well I'm on the road to making a wrestling game so I'm trying to get prepared. I have a problem which is I'm not sure which physics engine to use.
  11. Would it be better to modify an engine or leave the engine how it is?

[quote name='SimonForsman' timestamp='1340007064' post='4950166'] [quote name='mike4' timestamp='1340003782' post='4950162'] [quote name='Mr Rage' timestamp='1340000815' post='4950155'] I don't know much about Blender's game engine but people don't really use it. [/quote] You mean YOU don't use it? It's among the most used 3D modellers. [/quote] He is talking about the blender game engine, not the 3D modeller. Blender has a built in game engine aswell, but it is a fairly new addition to the package and hasn't been used that much (yet), from what i can tell it is fairly capable though. [/quote] Yes I was talking about Blenders game engine. The 3D modelling in Blender is amazing.
  13. I've used all 3. Game Maker is mainly used for 2D games. Its easy to use. Blender is more of a FREE 3D modelling and animation suite. You can build many things in Blender like a human body also rigging it and texturing it will successfully bring the human body to life. I don't know much about Blender's game engine but people don't really use it. Unity is a free engine that requires you to learn a language such as Javascript, C++(pro version), C# etc. What do you want to be in game development? Game programmer, designer, artist and animator etc. Lastly what type of game would you like to make in the future? The floor is yours.
  14. [quote name='Daerst' timestamp='1339742158' post='4949458'] Do you know any of these languages or would you have to learn from scratch? [/quote] I only know some of Javascript but I want to know which one is the best to learn and use for Unity.
  15. Currently, I'm using Blender and Unity. What language do you reckon I should use for Unity? C++, Javascript or C# maybe?
