I was just wondering who here was from perth and what your job/course is?
it would be good to know that im not on my own in hoping for a game dev career.
I wouldn?t worry about it mate, if your willing to put in the years of hard work to get good enough to work in the games industry, I?m sure by the time you break into the industry you would consider moving to a different state a small issue. I think its more important to worry about getting the necessary skills then to worry about wether or not you will be able to find work in your home town/city. [:)]
I?ll also point out that:
? It?s a growing industry and who really knows what the employment situation will be like in the future
? There are some developers in Perth, so you may manage to get a job at home
? Many people manage to sustain games development work online ? In that case it doesn?t really matter where you live!
It?s probably best to focus on your education before getting too worried about your future career. If you have the skills, you?ll get a career, no matter where you are based. [:)]
