In Topic: How beneficial can personal projects be?

14 April 2016 - 11:42 PM

Your portfolio can just as easily be a patchwork of half understood code cobbled together from the internet just as easily as it is totally you own original work.

 

I agree with frob that your professional work history is a bit more important.  Making games is a job, generally a fun job, but a job nonetheless.  Granted you didn't do 100% of the work and may have coasted from time to time but it shows you were able to work with a team and get things done on a reasonable schedule.  Working on and hopefully completing projects on your own is great and isn't something that a lot of people can do.  But working on something when you want to isn't the same as working on things when you have to.

Ok.


In Topic: Community College or Game Development?

Thanks for all the replies. Really cleared things up for me. I guess I just thought that since all of the most popular start ups CEOs never finished college that it would be unnecessary for me either, but then again, those guys are few and far between. I'll just suck it up and take the debt that a degree earns me. lol

 

A lot of those CEO's also came from rich families who had something to fallback on if their company failed.

 

I don't know what your game is, but two months for your first(?) game isn't very long to fully flesh it out.  Unless it is something niche and hits that perfect storm like Flappy Bird or Crossy Roads it will just drown in the sea of crap in the app stores.  If you want to try and swing your game as some kind of employment helper it needs to be fairly good.  Everybody and their dog has a game on the app store now.

 

Stay in school and finish the degree.  Pretty easy to pay off student loans once you get a job.

Amazing how quickly politics can turn people into babbling idiots.  The fact that (ex?) moderators are degenerating to childish name calling speaks volumes for the supposed moral superiority that some of you are trying to project.  Why this wasn't locked about three pages ago is kind of troublesome too.

Now I feel your pain.  Being stuck in the same space with people who don't have a common goal would be hell.

 

Noise can be a problem even at my work and you can have visual distractions.  Some of the artists have went to some extreme measures to try and make a full cubicle for themselves.  Luckily for me I have multiple computers at my desk with multiple monitors so I pretty much have a complete eye level shield from other people.
