    Icon4 For those of you who want to work in the video game industry. [TIPS]

    Hello guys.

    I'm pretty much going to see you die in agony. ( WUT ?? )


    I was wondering if some of you have considered a job in the game industry, because, after all, we play games, so why not make games ?

    Most of you guys are making great maps, or game variants for jka, and I admire that.

    But did you know you can get a job with this, coupled with, at minima, a degree in any field ?
    Yes you can ! YES YOU CAN !

    The example that I will give you, is that guy, who was at Blizzcon, a couple of years back.
    He used to do maps with the Starcraft 2 editor. A guy from Blizzard noticed the maps he was doing, and told the guy : " Hey dude, your maps are innovative, fun, and most of all, you did it all on your own ! "
    So he recruited the guy and now that guy is working as a level designer at Blizzard.WTF.

    In my case, I enjoy writing stories on my own, and when I play a game that lacks of stories around an area or a character, I try to write it up.
    My long-term objective is to become a game designer at ArenaNet ( the exact guys who did the Guild Wars series and worked at Blizzard, way back when SC1 was in development).
    Well, I won't expose the story of my life, but basically, I will study web programming, work at ArenaNet as a web programmer, and then rank up to game designer.

    But what you can do, if you do not make maps on your own, you can ask a guy to help you out, give you tips and tutorials, or ask around on the internet.
    It's quite simple !

    Where I want to end my point, is that you don't have to get a lot of degrees, like engineer degree or what the f*** else.

    Do games on your own, try writing stories, publish them on forums ( for Star Wars maps and mods, check lucasforums.com ).

    Sincerely guys, I want you to work in there. Gamers have a lot of potential.

    Don't forget that.

    It is you who make the game industry what it is today, not the business.


    Yours sincerely, Mocka.
