Careers in Focus: Gaming
On Saturday, February 6, I joined the Chicago Public Library's awesome YouMedia space along with many other gaming professionals from the Chicagoland area for a day focus teens interested in careers in gaming. I got to play my game Insight with a lot of motivated and curious youth and talk about their interest in games. We used Insight to look at their own skills and interests and discuss the many ways they might use them to pursue a career that makes the most of both.
I also participated on a panel of people who all work with games in different ways; some as storytellers, some video game designers, but all of whom shed light on games being much more than just "fun". They are fun! However, I know they would all agree with my statement, that games can "solve anything".
