One of the most asked questions I get as a game journalist is "How do you write crazy awesome game reviews and have non-stop sex with Russian models in the back of bazillion dollar sports cars all the time?"
The second most asked question I get is "How do I get in the games industry?" Well, thankfully I don't have to answer that because Game Developer magazine have put together another stunning edition of their annual Game Career Guide, which will inform you on game education, industry, and development.
This 125-page tome is full of great information, including but not limited to salaries by region and job title, a listing of game conferences, game jams, and directory of game development programs. This is valuable information that every aspiring game designer should know and it's all F R E E!
I always have a lot of fun reading these things, even though I don't think I'll be making a game anytime soon. I hope you guys do and have a spot in your credits for thanking Game Career Guide and this guy for point you toward it.
