Amar’s favourite games are old school, pen and paper RPGs because he can be creative, use his art, tell a story, be strategic, be social, and slay dragons. They’re just the complete package. He hopes that video games will get there. Until then, he’s excited about working at Roadhouse, making cool things and working with a bunch of cool people with similar goals.
His advice to job seekers is to practice and push yourself. You have to get uncomfortable to grow, it’s tempting to stick with what you are good at but seriously don’t do that. Succeeding ten times won’t teach you as much as failing once, so get out there and fail.
Kayla’s advice to job seekers is to make games! It sounds so easy, but it’s so rarely done. Make something, finish it, and put it out there. Learn how to fail. Learn how to critically analyze your work. Learn how to iterate and get better. Participate in game jams, do whatever it takes to just make stuff.
Outside of working at Roadhouse, she participates in game jams herself, where she’s produced such classics as “Awkward Handshake Simulator” and “The Evil Machinations of Fluffy McSnugglebottom.”
When asked about his favourite video games, Filip responds with two. Firstly, Starcraft, because he loves strategies and sci-fi and this combines both. And secondly, an unannounced botany educational title we created at Roadhouse because he likes education games with more profound meanings.
Want to be a successful job seeker and join the gaming industry? You’ll need to like games, graphics or programming, or ideally, like all of them together.
