Robert Madsen's Blog
I am an experienced IT professional with over 25 years in the industry. In 2004, I moved into the game industry working as a game programmer. Life now has new meaning! In 2010, I founded SynapticSwitch, an indie game studio dedicated to making games that entertain your brain!
A recent article published at http://tinyurl.com/l5gcxo4 is headlined: http://tinyurl.com/l5gcxo4. Is it the sexism and bad working conditions, or is it the sensationalist reporting of these that does the harm?
Over the next several posts I would like to share several articles that I wrote for the IGDA Indiespectives newsletter.
How do you balance the demands of contract work while tyring to work on your own game? I'm singing the "Contractor Blues"!
Laid off? Unemployed? Read part III and conclusion of the series on how fate forced me to start my own indie studio or die!
Think it sucks being unemployed? Cheer up and start your own studio!
If you just can't keep or get a job in the game industry because of the current economy, why not create your own job!
