Are you a gamer? Do you dream about making your own games, or do you know someone who does? The Video Game Careers series was written just for you.

Gaming is big business, and it's getting bigger all the time. Every year, tens of thousands of passionate fans try to break into the industry. And with the popularity of gaming growing higher and higher, that number just keeps climbing.

But for most aspiring developers, trying to find a way in becomes frustrating because they lack the skills and experience to position themselves as valuable hires. Or worse, they do get a job, only to find that they have the wrong mindset for game development and wash out after a short time - the average career in games lasts less than five years.

The Video Game Careers is a series of short, highly readable career guides for gamers, parents, or anyone who wants to understand game development.

"The Video Game Careers series is just what an aspiring game creator needs to hear. When 'Hardy Says', you had best listen!" - Scott Rogers, author of Level Up! The Guide to Great Video Game Design

Video Game Careers books are chock-full of humor, proven insights from industry pros, and fascinating, behind the scenes anecdotes from some of the biggest projects in gaming history. The Ultimate Edition collects all three books in the series into one handy complete volume, including:

Book 1 - The Beginners Guide The perfect intro for kids, parents or anyone interested in a career in game development.

Book 2 - Understanding the Industry A step-by-step explanation of how games are made, and how the games business works.

Book 3 - Game Jobs An in-depth guide to every career path in game development featuring tips on how to find and land the job of your dreams, and how to keep it once you get there.

Version 2 of the Ultimate Edition contains the expanded VGC Resource Guide, updated for 2017, as well as step-by-step instructions for completing your first indie game development project.

"Due to my tenure in the games business, people often ask me how they or their kids can get a start in the video game trade. I invariably direct them to the Video Game Careers series of books as an excellent place to start. Hardy LeBel paints a straightforward and useful picture of the industry that serves as a good launching point for aspiring game makers." - Zack Norman, Co-Founder, and President TRIPP Interactive VR
