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. I'm implementing the cohen clipping algorithm and in order to do this, I need to be able to show the parts of the line that are outside the viewport in a different colour. How is it possible to show objects that aren't within the viewport?   Cheers
  2. Sorry to worry again. I'm implementing the cohen clipping algorithm and in order to do this, I need to be able to show the parts of the line that are outside the viewport in a different colour. Firstly, how is it possible to show objects that aren't within the viewport?
  3. You Sir are a lifesaver. I would have spent hours trying to figure it out. Bless you!
  4. Hey all.   Why won't this code work? I'm trying to randomly draw lines...     public void GenerateRandomObjects()         {                 for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)             {                 Gl.glBegin(Gl.GL_LINES);                   Random r = new Random();                   int X1 = r.Next(800);                 int X2 = r.Next(800);                 int Y1 = r.Next(800);                 int Y2 = r.Next(800);                   Gl.glVertex2i(X1, Y1);                 Gl.glVertex2i(X2, Y2);                   Gl.glEnd();               }               Gl.glFlush();           }     It produces 1 line :/
  5. The background colour changes when I change it, but nothing seems to be drawing properly...
  6. I've replaced that Triangle code with the following     Gl.glBegin(Gl.GL_LINES);             Gl.glColor3f(0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f);             Gl.glVertex3f(-2.0f, 2.0f, 0.0f);             Gl.glVertex3f(2.0f, -2.0f, 0.0f);             Gl.glEnd();   Nothing wants to draw/render. It's pretty upsetting when you want to do your assignments and nothing wants to work :/
  7. For some strange reason I fiddled around and made it work. -_- Thanks for the response, I'll be back if I run into more problems (hopefully not)
  8. Hey Guys   I'm just starting out with Opengl, and my lecturer has given us an example in Visual Studio using the Tao framework. The example simply draws a triangle and adds colour to it etc. I've literally copied the code line for line into my own solution, with variable names remaining the same, yet my Glcontrol stays Black! It's driving me absolutely mad. Please won't you help me out. The code is extremely simple so I can't figure out what is wrong... Box is the name of the GlControl on the form which I dragged into place.       using Tao.Platform.Windows; using Tao.OpenGl;   namespace Graphics1 {     public partial class Form1 : Form     {         public Form1()         {             InitializeComponent();         }             protected override void CreateHandle()         {             base.CreateHandle();             Box.InitializeContexts();         }           protected override void DestroyHandle()         {             base.DestroyHandle();             Box.DestroyContexts();         }           private void Box_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)         {             // set background colour and clear it             Gl.glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);             Gl.glClear(Gl.GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);               // set up camera             Gl.glMatrixMode(Gl.GL_PROJECTION);             Gl.glLoadIdentity();             Glu.gluOrtho2D(0, 1, 0, 1);               // set lighting               // draw             Gl.glBegin(Gl.GL_TRIANGLES);                   Gl.glColor3f(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);                 Gl.glVertex2f(0.0f, 0.0f);                   Gl.glColor3f(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);                 Gl.glVertex2f(1.0f, 0.0f);                   Gl.glColor3f(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);                 Gl.glVertex2f(0.5f, 1.0f);             Gl.glEnd();               // flip back buffer             Gl.glFlush();         }       }
