Hi everyone,
I reckon you might be interested in new Software Developer's Jorunal issue about Game Development.

We are currently starting a new division in SDJ with ambitious plan to make it world's best professionals-only game industry section you can find in a magazine.

It is created by professionals for professionals.

You can learn how to develop games or simply get inspired by our authors! We want to give you the best of game development, with articles ranging from programming, production, business and management, visual arts and much more.

What's inside?

Casual games in Java for mobile devices
How to develop games using Java? General design understanding and much more.

Cross platform development on mobile with Unity3D
If you're writing native code, your days are numbered. In this era of fast-moving platform wars, you can't afford to be anchored to one technology. Learn about your cross platform options and why Unity3D is probably the best choice for your studio.

Introduction to OpenGL
If we want to develop a game with massive graphics nowadays, we will probably use DirectX or OpenGL, for rendering. DirectX is slightly more popular, but OpenGL will overgrow it soon, so if you want to dive in developing cool looking games with awesome 3D worlds, this is the way you should start.

Indie games
The indie game industry has its golden era due to new online distribution systems and the mobile game markets. We will provide you with articles from some of the most notable independent game creators.

The Economics of Game Development: the Business of Freemium in Games (and Beyond)
It takes a lot to create and place an app on the mobile market, a combination of creative app design and technical knowhow to turn that next great idea into an actual working app to submit to a publisher like Apple or Google. And with aggressive app marketing, and more than a little luck (preferably both!), you may even get your app to hit the #1 spot on whichever application stores you’re targeting. But what makes your app stay on top?
