Come experience the thrills and the ups and downs of this incredible industry – with an emphasis on first-hand accounts of what IT’S REALLY LIKE to develop, launch, and publish video games.

Together with a framework that allows a young gamer to look inside one’s self; explore one’s unique set of strengths, weaknesses, talents, and values; decide if this industry is right for one’s self, how to stand out, and how to get started…
This book seeks to delight, educate, and inspire the readers by answering three sets of questions:
1. WHAT IS IT REALLY LIKE to create and publish games?
2. Does THE INDUSTRY OFFER VIABLE OPPORTUNITIES for young people? What about teens who are not STEM-inclined or artistic?
3. SHOULD EDUCATORS AND PARENTS FOSTER, CULTIVATE, OR CURE such “dreamers”? And if the former, How? Free on Kindle.
