Quest Complete: Get a Job as a Game Developer

Achievement Unlocked - Foot in the door

 

I did it!  I got a job working as a contracted design production assistant.  I’m technically contracted to WB Games, but I’m doing work for Monolith.  Next step: Work my way up to an FTE position!

New Game Engine

After taking a good amount of time to think about where I am in terms of my career, I have decided to quit my job as a QA tester and use the 40 hours a week that I would have been at work to program in an attempt to better my programming skills and land a programming job.  I will start by making an engine, which I will use to make a 2D game.  After that, I will either make a 3D game or start making tech demos of things that I want to show off to employers, like A* pathfinding, a 3D graphics demo, or something similar.
