How To Make it In The Video Game Industry (with Robert Canciello)

A couple of weeks ago Jon was honored to interview budding Game Designer Robert Canciello. They discussed a myriad of subjects, such as LGBTQ representation in Video Games, how to find your passion, and the future of the gaming world. This rare interview shows what an up and coming game developer has to endure in New York City. You don’t want to miss this if you’re new to game development and don’t know where to start.

Do you need a formal education to get a job in the Video Game industry?

Game Development vs Game Design, do you need both or can you get educated in one or the other?

What are the standards and principles in the Video Game industry? Are they meant to be broken?

Why are there no Video Game History courses through formal Game Design college education?

All these questions and more are answered in this small series of videos. Hope you guys enjoy!

NYC, Geek Out!
