This Week In Game
What are ye buyin'?
The games industry is extremely difficult to get into without a lot of experience and a few completed projects under your belt. Entry-level roles are far and few between and when an opportunity does pop up, applicants are willing to try anything just to be in the industry, let alone their ideal job. While it might seem OK to go for unrelated positions, it can seriously compromise your chances in the future.
Develop has a really great little feature running on its site at the moment. It’s asked game developers working at studios to reveal the absolute worst things they’ve ever seen in job applications. It’s hilarious, but it’s also a cautionary tale! Thinking about applying for a job in video games? Maybe don’t describe yourself as “amazeballs” in your resume!
You may have heard of a little studio called Halfbrick. Oh, who am I kidding? Along with Firemint (now Firemonkeys), Halfbrick is probably Australia’s most well-known mobile developer with hits including Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja under its belt. The reason it’s being mentioned today? Halfbrick is on the hunt for junior designers.
Mention “Ultimo” and “video games” together and your first thoughts go immediately to Team Bondi, the now-defunct developer behind 2011′s LA Noire. But that’s the past. In the present, we’re associating them with the ABC and the game designer role it’s looking to fill. The ABC? Making games? Interesting indeed.
