I am a game development student in my second year of a three year program and I would like to start building my portfolio. I was thinking of creating some games to show what I can do to potential employers since I wont have any work related experience when I graduate. But as I'm sure you all know there are tons of ways to approach developing/designing a game and I'm curious if anyone had any insight as to any "standards" that come with this? Is it okay to use game engines like Unity, Unreal, Game Maker etc? Or would it be better to make a game from scratch to better show case your skills? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated!
I am currently doing a study into Persuasive Games and how the design of them could be improved to make them more efficient.
While looking for places to post my survey I found this forum and hoped you guys could give me some thoughts and opinions
If you are interested in participating in the survey you can find the link here: https://goo.gl/forms/6LszmtYnPd3TjgpF2
Also please let me know what you think of the genre and how you think the design could be improved ?
Thank you =)
