Getting Started
Pages 20

Graduating from a university, community college, or techoriented school and moving straight into a game development job can be a daunting task … so hopefully you are one of the fortunate (and probably hard-working) members of this community who has stormed from the chute and landed a job developing a game at an established company. Besides saving you lots of money and headaches associated with creating your own game, a thriving game studio will already have the resources in place to develop, publish, and sell a successful title.
