Contractor for hire — design consultant

I offer game design implementation & consultations for free2play projects, but I wasn't able to find fitting category in classifieds. Should I post my ad in "business"?

Game designer, 5y exp, need career advice

06 May 2012 - 06:07 AM

Hi there. I'm new to the forums, and I hope that I chose the correct forum to post this.

I've been working in game industry as a game designer (and lately as a producer) for 5 years, with over 20 projects under the belt. However, all of the games that I've worked on we're free2play online games, mostly browser-based, and for the last couple years — social and mobile. Which's not exactly the AAA titles that I've dreamt to develop when I first got here.

If'd live in USA or Canada, I guess I could just look for a job in this field — but there aren't any companies developing big single-player games around, and finding a company that would want to relocate a game designer is extremely difficult. So, here's my question — how should I proceed towards my career goal? May be I just should develop something myself as am indie, or get into coding (with which I'm pretty familiar with), or just get more experience in the field that I'm in.... I just don't see even a theoretical career path from where I am now to, say, being a director of a bug production in 10 years time, and that's really depressing.
