Candidvania

Game development is in dire need of candid conversations. It’s suffocating these days.

For instance, game development’s average career is now five years.

How dare we call that a career? Like what in the actual fuck five years are going to do for one’s life? And you go to a game design school for a 3-year degree, $30K in debt for that? How ludicrous it is that we simply turn our heads away from such a terrible deal that is the reality for the padawans out there? My god.

Gaming was worth $7.8B in 2000. It is now worth $180B.

That’s 23 times more in 20 years, and careers are shorter than ever???? Make THAT make sense. Wait don’t, it absolutely doesn’t make sense at all.

We very much need those conversations.
