My English class has assigned a project on our desired future professions and I chose to be a game designer. I was wondering if there was anyone here on the Escapist that either is a game designer in the industry or at least knows someone in the industry. I just need to ask them a couple of interview questions, so if someone knows someone please pass this on to them.
There are a few users on here who are "in the industry", I'm not sure what kinds of jobs they have exactly though. They're the ones with the red usernames (currently drawing a blank on names, sorry)
EDIT: @Virgil and @ThriKreen are two of them.
Hmm.. You could also try some indie developers since they seem more.. approachable. I met some devs while playing GAR and they were fun to hang out with. The steam greenlight is a good place to start.
Josh Sawyer, who was one of the lead developers of Fallout: New Vegas has a Formspring account where he talks to his fans. You could shoot him a few questions as well:
