Re: IADT questions
Well it seems Lesson 3 and 34 pretty much confirm the right career for my "passion". Game design sounds exactly what I'm interested in. Game mechanic ideas, concepts, story telling, marketing/salesmen-ship, team management, quality assurance testing...
This is exactly what I want to do!
I also see that Full Sail's bachelor degree in design has a lot of classes their course that line up with your suggestions on learning subjects (History, Drawing, Music, Writing, Literature, Mythology, story telling, Public Speaking, marking, management).
Which sounds like it might actually tie in with a lot of skills I learned and honed as a military NCO leader (time management, organizing tasks, public speaking, professional writing, etc).
Well that really puts me at ease. I wasn't really sure what "design" entailed, but it seems a lot more of what I'm interested in. Now I can't wait to start school and start working on projects with people! I never thought I'd be excited to go to school!
