Guy In Rubber Suit Posted June 22, 2008 Report Share Posted June 22, 2008 I need some connections, badly. I'm going to the University of Advancing next fall and I'm majoring in thier Game Design program (Interactive Media). However, from what I heard from somebody who work as an programmer, being a "game designer" is a bit bad if you don't have much skills.I'm doing Music Composing at a local community college, so if any skills are needed in Game Design, I am perpare. University of Advancing Technology? I went there. Yeah for game design you want to pad it out with something like level design, some knowledge of programming and/or scripting or maybe some art of some sort. Depending on the size of the company you might wear many hats. At a smaller company it'd be expected that people know several disciplines whilst at a larger company it'd be best to specialize in something. And while it's good to do some scripting with an exciting game engine, a lot of companies will have their own proprietary software to work on. But in general it's good to know the fundamentals of programming and scripting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
