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.

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. you can become an official ps vita developer by applying to Playstation Mobile program. but it's not the official SDK for the big companies, it's more similar to XNA. Something for indies and small developer. It costs 99$ per year. However, not all countries are supported yet.
  2. make sure about the mapping, probably you are mapping it wrong   // ------ MAP------ p_device->BeginScene(); sprite->Begin(D3DXSPRITE_ALPHABLEND); RECT rectangleg; rectangleg.right = 48; rectangleg.left = 0; rectangleg.bottom = 48; rectangleg.top = 0; RECT rectanglew; rectanglew.right = 96; rectanglew.left = 48; rectanglew.bottom = 48; rectanglew.top = 0; RECT rectangles; rectangles.right = 48; rectangles.left = 0; rectangles.bottom = 96; rectangles.top = 48;
  3. @Daark : the wii game that you're talking about is called Okami
  4. hey awesome community of gamedev, I'm really sick and I can't stop thinking. I want to be the best game programmer ever and I want to learn everything. ofc no one will learn everything so I want to learn most of the things. I want to be good with engines like unity and I want to be good in making engines, I want to be good in both hardware and software and I want to have acceptiple skills in 3Ds max and character animation. I want to master C++ and I want to be good in C#. I want to create my dream game in Unity after I finish my current project and also I want to make my own 2D engine ( maybe 3D engine later). the thing is.. I feel it's not enough.. when I uae unity I feel that am not a good game programmer and I really think that professionals wouldn't call it game programming unless I make my own engine starting from OpenGL. I'm really lost I can't concentrate on one path at each time one day I work on my 2D engine with OpenGL and SDL and other day I work on my other project in Unity and the other day I do some 3Ds max modeling am really lost.. I just felt like letting all out with ppl like me.. thanks for lsitening.
