I just recently left College for multiple reasons. I was attending IADT Vegas, and found out that I was more advanced then what the school could teach me. I have been davelling in Game Development since I was 10-years-old. I have a great knowledge of the design aspects. My only problem is that I need help with programming. I am working on that so no need for help on that. What I need is to know, is how should I go about getting into the Gaming Industry? I live in Las Vegas, so that kills one problem. Their are over 50 gaming companies where I live. I need some advice on where to go from here.
Should I start dropping resumes off to the companies? Also, should I start putting together a porfolio?
I've been an Indie Game Designer so long, I just don't have the slightest clue what to do.
