My college time was pretty well. I have studied B.A(Hons) Game Design. During my college days, I developed a keen interest in game development and started to learn on my own. My family members are quite uncertain about the gaming industry and the career opportunities it provides to game developers. I started to work on my career path and gained some insights into what game development is.I have realized, there prevailed a common misconception among people that the gaming industry provides very low career options. Fortunately, it isn’t. It took some time for people to understand the career aspects.
