Even as you are completing 10+2, Intermediate, or diploma, you must be wondering “what next?”
This is the time of your life when you receive plenty of advice about the bachelor’s degree to choose and the streams that fetch you the best jobs, and so on. Obviously, you would like to choose Computer Science.
And at least some of you must be wondering if there is a stream that combines loads of fun with your favorite Computer Science and is more rewarding or how your deft hand can draw for the whole world. The answer is a career in game development.
And what aptitudes one should have to be successful in game development?
You Look for Fun
You are someone who looks for fun in everything that you do.
Do you remember tossing in the bed thinking of the new game that your friend had mentioned. Do you remember running home to turn on your game console or making new rules to play an old game and better still, invent games?
Your Love Challenges That are Fun
You are someone who can return to a task, if it has loads of fun, gives you a sense of achievement and is challenging at the same time.
Do you remember racing paper boats in streams of rain water gushing down the road and the number of times you made a new boat so that you could win?
You Are Self-Motivated
You are self-motivated in matters that are close to your heart. And you don’t mind sitting in a quiet corner to do what you like the most.
Do you remember the unfinished puzzle that gently troubled you, till you solved it? Do you remember the sketches you made when rains did not let you play in the open?
If you have some or all of these traits, you are made for a career in game development.
Good luck boys & girls.
