Do you want to work on video games? Making Fun is written based on years as a hiring manager in the industry and over two decades of on the job experience.

Part 1 of the book describes the evolution of the industry, from its birth to the blockbuster productions it generates, on to some of the runaway casual game hits that have been making headlines and into the future. It provides a description of the process by which a modern-day game is built from the idea to the store shelf, then lists and explains the common components of game hardware and the breakdown of component systems and assets that make up the software with an outline of the various genres that these games are often categorized into. Next Making Fun contains an encyclopedia of the many types of positions that the industry employs to produce games. The section continues with a description of what a day is like for a few different types of these employees, to give you a feel for what the day-to-day experience is like.

Part 2 concentrates on how to go about making yourself ready for a position in the game industry. There are things you can do on your own, directions to take in your education, even ways you can change your way of thinking about games that can help get you ready for a career in the industry. Making Fun will help you set your expectations about the working conditions, compensation, and benefits of the industry.

Finally, Making Fun will provide you with valuable guidelines on how to succeed if you do land the career you’re hoping for.
