Hey! I was reading some articles about game programming, and I was wondering: how long do game programmers work per week on a regular basis (how many hours)? On average.. Thanks, Voytek http://www.liquidsoftware.cjb.net Games, apps, and more!

Myself? On average, I spend about 72 - 96 hours weekly on game development. That''s what happens when you''re the sole programmer on a team working on a major project. Don''t mean to scare ya away, cuz I''m sure that''s not typical.

(I don''t get much sleep.)

I guess I do between 45 and 60 on average but it gets much more hectic towards a deadline and could escalate up to nearly 100 for the week before d-day.



-- And that''s my $0.02 worth --

Hang on, where I come from, $0.02 is rounded down. Does that mean my opinion is worthless or priceless?
