Game development is bigger than the film and music industries combined. Games offer a very interesting and promising career path. Although today's younger generation consumes games in large quantities, they often have no idea that it is possible to make a living from game development alone. What should those interested in this field know when deciding on their future, so that they will ultimately succeed and their expectations will be met? What kind of professions can be found in games and what are the prerequisites for this? What schools can you study at and how can you prepare to interact with studios when applying for jobs? How to function in professional teams? Selected professional creators will give you answers to these and other questions you are wondering about.
