    Furyo got a reaction from Richard in How to break in the games industry - an insiders' guide   
    Mapcore was originally a modding community, and from this pool of talent came many industry professionals that are now working on some of the biggest games in the industry.

    In this thread, professionals from Mapcore share their experience of how to break in, what to do and what not to do when applying for a job, going in for an interview and securing your position once you are offered your first job.

    Hopefully this will shine a light on an often asked subject for many forum viewers eager to join this industry, and if you have any other question or suggestion please feel free to ask.

    Killing Grounds has closed (AKG) and now redirects to the Valve wiki. I'll post my Source links tonight when I'm home.

    Preparing my first class I'll teach on Wednesday. Kinda weird to be working on stuff like that, I guess I'm just not used to it. It's a one-off thing for now too. Using The Last of Us (LD masterpiece) to teach these fine young people at Supinfogame about narrative, exposition and tutorials through LD in intro levels.

    I'll post everything online once the class is done.

    Thanks for the kind words
    I chose that platform because Ulule is the leading European platform, number 1 in France where Kickstarter does not yet exist. I do foresee that most backers will be from that particuliar region of Normandy, so I had to make that call

    Sorry to hear Sprony, but in a way you're so much better off. I remember you mentioning you hated your job anyway, so it's a good thing you're out and getting the benefits you are. You will pull through though, a) because you're fucking Sprony, and b) because you have the best approach towards these big life changing moments I've seen.

    Sprony, the saying "when it rains it pours" certainly is true... Or in French, "never twice without a third time". Shit piles on in fucking layers and this year was no exception for me. But if you're patient enough, there's always light at the end of the tunnel. Only one way to go about your troubles. Find the lowest hanging stressful fruit and kick that shit out of your life. Then work down your list.

    As for waiting for the next 5 months. Don't wait. There are plenty of things you can do to improve your life right now. Eat healthy if you're not, and go to bed earlier than you do. Fuck Mapcore and the rest of the stuff you can easily do without for a little while. Focus on yourself and your wife, the kid will be better off for it.

    I think it's been atleast 4 years since I posted anything on Mapcore. I've been lurking anonymously from time to time.
    Here's a short summary of what I've been doing.
     
    So back in 2010, I decided game development was stupid and there would be no chance of me ever working on games.
    I got a boring job as a software engineer in the IT-industry since I thought it would be a low risk well paying career choice.
    Worked on +10 different projects in roughly 4 years, became a functioning alcoholic, partied a lot, did a lot of travelling and
    was generally having a great time.
     
    Last year I noticed my drinking habit was getting out of hand. Stopped drinking, realized I hated my job.
    Saved enough money to quit and start my own company making games.
     
    Finally working full time on a game for the past 2 months. I don't think I've ever been so happy
     
    I think this picture is pretty accurate http://www.commitstrip.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Strip-Dileme-de-codeur-550-finalenglsih.jpg
