No, my TF2 items from 2010 are still printing money ^_^ TF2 is also extremely fun and simple to produce art for. I just don't have tons of free time, and if we had known beforehand that non-holiday, non-promotional items were accepted into the game from the workshop so rarely these days, we probably wouldn't have made a set in the first place. It's just not an effective use of our time.
I wish I could've gotten into gamedev
Gotcha. Thank you so much Alia. I was looking for nearby developers (I live in Illinois), and found two in particular. One of them is in Chicago. The name escapes me, but it's apparently owned by the co founder of Bungie and they've done alot of games, most notable being Stubbs the Zombie. Unfortunatly they're a subsidary of Disney Interactive, and I don't think I would like working under those guys alot.
The other is Volition Inc. in Champaign, Il. The guys who worked on the Red Faction and Saints Row series. They're not that far, and are the only company I would like to start at after College. So that's probably where I'm going to go. Unless I can work at say Gearbox and not leave Chicago (I can't move out of my house yet).
Ah wonderful! One more question. If I had no portfolio or previous experience, could I still get a job at a game developer? Or do I need to have a little bit of experience?
Would spending time developing games in college count as industry experience?
how did you get experiance in the game industry? Does that mean I should start at a small time developer like say Arkane Studios?
Is there any requirements to join that I should know of? I would love to sign up one day. I was going to go for Valve, but from what I hear, they have very high requirements.
Hey there, what's it like working at Gearbox?
Hey there, I'm also interested in becoming an artist in the game industry, though I don't really know all of the available positions for an artist and was generally looking for some tips from someone experienced in that line of work, if that's possible of course.
You're dumb and you should feel dumb. Learn to computer you n00b.
