Take care of yourself: A tip from the 2014 Game Career Guide

In this edition, Frog Fractions developer Jim Crawford offers some advice for indies and student developers: take care of yourself and your team, so you (and your game) don't fizzle out!
Looking to advance your career in the video game industry? The annual Game Career Guide for 2014 is now available! In this edition, Frog Fractions developer Jim Crawford offers some advice for indies and student developers: take care of yourself and your team! Whether you're crunching on a weekend game jam project or the final months of a multi-year development cycle, your work will suffer if you don't take care of yourself. "You may be tempted to stay up all night to spend more time on your game. Don't. Game development requires clear thinking, which in turn requires a good night's sleep." "Sitting all day staring at a screen will take its toll on you, physically and mentally. Take any excuse you can to get away from your development machine and do something that gets your blood pumping. If you don't already get regular exercise, you may be shocked at how refreshed you feel after a twenty minute jog." There's much more in this year's Game Career Guide. Download it today!
