Help breaking into the video game industry?
I'm trying to get into video games as a career, but I don't really know how to go about doing it. I'm in college, getting an associates in Game Design, possibly a higher degree. I'm also beginning to learn programming so I can put some of my ideas into a demo or two to add onto my resume. I really have two questions- 1. How do I go about getting an internship at a game design company, and which companies are the best to ask? 2. What would be a good platform to build my demos on? Should I flat out learn an programming language, or should I use something like Game Maker?
