Overview: The journey through the games industry is not cookie cutter. There are multiple ways to enter, and even more ways to develop a career. Like characters from an RPG, each person can specialize into specific craft areas, pick up side skills along the way, and even change roles entirely. The path to finding success in the industry doesn't have to be linear. nnIn this panel, seasoned game developers from Phoenix Labs, USC Games, PUBG Corporation, and Wizards of the Coast will share their non-linear career paths in games. They'll share learnings and reflections from their diverse journeys through games from animation and branding, to events and operations, to game direction and studio management.
