Getting a job as a game designer, tester or writer is the big dream for so many people, and yet I work with these talented but lucky buggers every day. Quite how that happened is a bit of a mystery. They worked hard to get to where they are and, quite rightly, they’re proud of themselves. Heck, I’m proud of them too, though I’m not sure they could say the same for me. I ended up working in the games industry without ever having intended to. Far from working my arse off trying to get the job I have today, I kind of woke up one morning with the words “game writer” on my CV. For a man who, a year ago, didn’t know an RPG from an SUV, it’s been quite an intense six months.
