How to get into the game industry
Posted on:May 01 2007
It looks like it's the time of the year again: People keep sending me mails, asking me how to get into the game industry. (I'm wondering why they keep sending me those, BTW, but who cares..) I should add an FAQ entry on my websites. But it's also a nice blog entry :)
So here is a very quick, short and hopefully obvious way how you can easily get a job in the game industry, no matter if you want to work as level designer, 3d graphic artist, game programmer or whatever: Simply impress your future boss with a finished game you've been worked on. Simple as that. There is no better way to show that you are able to work on and create a game and maybe even that you can do it in a team. Burn the game or project on DVD and take it with you to the job interview. Tell them about some of the details, and that's it. With this they'll see that you are the right man for the job and than you can finish it. Academic degrees or documents from those currently getting popular game development universities are worth nothing to people who know how to develop software or especially games, in my opinion.
