As a game maker with a software development background, I see gamification as the added value of making any kind of computer applications - and particularly game development tools - easy to use and fun!
Most people think of a job as more or less univalent in terms of requirements: the company asks and the worker provides. However, I would like to challenge this by listing my own set of requirements for an employer.

My take on this topic is closely related to another fresh article about Steam http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/217583/How the surge of Steam releases will affect game developers.php r n r nSo yes, it is easy to self publish, but it is also clear that many developers lack some skills that the publishers are ...
