PacktPub $5 Deals, Plus a Giveaway for FREE EBooks

     The title says it all! I have been informed by PacktPub that almost all their ebooks are going for $5 or less until January 6th. The main link for the campaign is HERE.

     This is where I got the jMonkeyEngine 3.0 CookBook from. PacktPub has a huge game development library, so if there are any books you want to pickup, now is the time!

     PacktPub has also told me that they are willing to sponsor up to 3 free ebooks ! Therefore, I'll be holding a giveway for the ebooks (consider it a late Christmas gift from us)! Send us an email at indiebynight at with

  • subject: "Giveaway"
  • body: your name (please don't be greedy and pull any silly tricks).

     I'll draw three names out of a hat (meaning a random draw, with no repeats) and announce the three lucky winners, as well as email them. The winners can then email me back telling me which book they want. I will then email them the free code to use on PacktPub to get the ebook. There has been a small change. I've been told I need to pick the three books to give out, so these are the books:

     These books aren't specific to any game development environment, so they should be of help to all who enter. I will announce the winners after the deadline passes, and the winners will receive an email with the new ebook in their accounts on PackPub soon after.

     Remember, the giveaway ends January 4th at 11:59 pm PST (2:59 am EST) ! The giveaway has ended.

     Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and the team here wishes everyone Happy New Year! I hope 2015 makes your indie dev dreams come true!
