A good insight into the various jobs but no real help in getting into game design.
on 26 July 2014
This book is an interesting read if you want an insight into the various jobs in the games market and what each entails. The problem is the book really falls short in offering any useful advice in how to develop your skills of present yourself to get any of these jobs. At the end of each chapter based on different job styles there is a mock up job advertisement showing what would be required from an potential employee. The problem is all the mock adverts show that the applicant would need 2 - 6 years experience working in game design. This is very dishearting to read when you are looking at a book that is ment to help you in understanding what is required to get into the market.
I study animation at the moment and have a skill set in various 3D applications but all this book has done for me is show me that unless I am already working In game design I will find it hard to get a job with no previous experience.
