The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development.

The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. 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.

  8. Hello Forumers, excuse me if I spell anything wrong, i'm kind of tired :p   Anyway, if you have played my game "Swords of Morovaith" (Here: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/645075-swords-of-morovaith/) you will know what this post is about.   I am releasing a new update for it, Version 1.6. It's not going to be a HUGE update but there will be two (2) new skills to master :)   New Skills: - Hunting (Set traps and catch items for an amount of XP) - Alchemy (Create Potions)   I have not found a use to the hunting skill but for The Maxing Reward (Getting Reward for achieving max level on the skill) Alchemy you will be able to craft Health Potions to use during duels. I may just keep hunting at unlocking new traps to use.   The planned release for this update will be around: 11pm (USA, Mountain Time) 12am (USA, Central Time)   Thanks :)   ~ Mod Slay
  9. Hello fellow forumers. I have a game my team and I made together. It's name (As in the title) is Swords of Morovaith. It is decided as finished but you never know if we will add another update. I decided to put this on GameDEV because the other site I was posting to CRASHED and doesn't exist any more :(      Anyway, this is a text based game that runs in Batch (Batch File). If there are any bugs or problems please let me know :)   Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ruedlk3dyoft7d9/Swords_of_Morovaith_1.5.bat    Official Website: http://www.diversiongames.webs.com
