does this count as a shipped title? (jobs in the industry)

Recommended Posts

A while back in 97, I had a demo that showed off the features of a new gfx card at the time for a now defunt leading 3D graphics card designer. It was released on the cover CD of Boot magazine. Does that count as a shipped title? (the kind companies ask for on job ads) I'm gona start j-o-b hunting shortly.(I'm out of school in a few months!) (it's funny cause at the time the company actually offered me a job then ) well if any industry pro's know what counts let me know please. thanks quack [edited by - quack on May 1, 2003 3:48:02 PM]

It will depend on who is reviewing your resume.

If you are applying for a graphics programming job, then there is a good chance that it will.

Any other programming job, maybe. It just depends on the reviewer/intevier.

....I had a demo that.....

A demo doesn''t constitute a shipped product. They mean a full game started, finished, boxed and sold to show that you can go the whole distance. But, as Mike said, they can someotime relax that requirement. If for instance you have done an entire shareware game or have done a 3d engine or some other interesting programme that demonstrates an ability to get the job done they might accept that.
