Surviving Game School speaks about what to expect in a top game design or game development college program, and what to expect once students get out. Making games is not at all the same as playing games. Uncommonly blunt, the book reveals the rigors – and the joys – of working in this industry. Along the way the book touches on themes of time management, creativity, teamwork, and burnout. The authors explore the impact working in the game industry can have on personal relationships and family life. The book closes with advice about life’s goals and building and keeping a sensible balance between work and everything else.


Key Features:

  • What you can expect from a top college Game Design Program, from an experienced college professor
  • What to expect while working in the games industry, from 25-year veteran game developer.
  • How to find an industry job after gaining a relevant college degree
  • How to build and maintain a satisfying career in the games industry
