The game industry is one of the fastest growing careers, particularly in India, and there is huge demand for trained professionals such as Game Designers, Programmers, Artists, and Testers among other roles.
BUT here's the thing . . . game-making is a complex process with a lot of moving parts and the game industry is one of the YOUNGEST career paths, which means that there's a HUGE lack of information, guidance and mentoring for people who want to be game makers or advance in their game careers.
"How do I get started making games?"
"Should I do a game course-and if so, which one?"
"I'm doing a B.Tech. and want to join gaming; what should I do?"
"How do I get a high-paying job in the game industry?"
"What does it take to be a Game Designer?"
Gamer2maker Nitro is a FREE event designed to give you the answers to these and many other questions. In these two days, I will show you what it takes to have a successful career as a game-maker.
During the two live sessions we will do an exercise to learn how to build a game career strategy based on your personal and professional goals.
I'm also going to talk about Game Courses, Portfolios and Gamification. . .
