You knew your gamer would make a career of it…
Can you believe this? Video Game Grad Programs Opens Up Industry
Traditionally, video game designers learned their trade from other designers, a system that meant the people who made the games were often living in a monoculture. But that’s changed recently; for the past five or 10 years, universities have been offering degree programs in video game design.
The programs are not about coding; instead they look at games as a medium for artistic experimentation and collaboration. And as students emerge, they are gradually making their mark on the industry.
My kids have told me for years that they would be able to earn a living off gaming. Now, it appears they were right!
