What are the careers in gaming?

What used to be considered a niche hobby has turned into a huge growth industry and there are countless opportunities for exciting careers. If you’re interested in the design side of gaming you can pursue a career as a character artist, a 3D animator or spatial environmental designer. If you love the complexity and rules of a game then a career as a software engineer, game programming or game developer may be more your style. There’s never been a better time to start a career in game design and development.
