failed Uni application :/

Recommended Posts

I´m really depressed right now because this didnt worked out.

Wanted to study Game Design in Germany and was pretty confident with my application.. but didn´t even got to the interviews.

Would be awesome if someone knows a public/free institution that teaches similar stuff in the EU, where you can start in Summer.

Didn´t got any feedback for this stuff yet so i´ll just dump some here.

First comes a short Introcomic for my setting

I was always interested in mapping for NS2 and as my setting fitted NS2´s i decided to use Spark to show my Level Design experience

i first worked on a playable greybox for ns2

out of curiosity - where did you apply? environment looks good for a first application but I'd try to push it further in the time that you are waiting for another gig.

They perhaps don't appreciate how difficult it actually is to do what you did in Spark, is my guess. It's not easy to do what you did, and most people never even get to that point.

Where you should go from here I'm not sure, but you're not helpless by any means.

Yep, thats ridiculous. Assuming you have some further education qualifications any university in the UK would take you with that portfolio.

If you didn't get in after demonstrating that I'm really not sure I'd actually want to go to that University. They either have impossibly high expectations or they're fuckin' clueless.

Out of interest, I wonder how many of MapCore's pros went to Uni?

I have a Bachelors in game art. It was pointless, 3/22 from my year managed to get industry jobs. marks went to the same uni as me (year below) and left after one year and works at CA. Says it all.
