The editors of Gamasutra are pleased to announce the debut of a new sister site, Game Career Guide
- founded by the CMP Game Group (creators of Gamasutra, Game Developer
magazine, and Game Developers Conference) specifically for students, aspiring students and educators in the game industry.
The site has expanded from the already successful education coverage on sister website Gamasutra, will run as a complement to the Game Developer
magazine's annual Game Career Guide issue
, and publishes daily news and regular feature coverage on the cutting edge of game industry education.
GameCareerGuide.com also features an in-depth 'Getting Started' page
and a community section
where students, potential students and educators alike can discuss pertinent issues, and which will expand over the coming months to feature much greater community interactivity.
In relation to this launch, we welcome educators, industry professionals, and students to submit for publication on the website. Generally, submissions fall into the following categories, but we also encourage unique topics including but certainly not limited to software reviews, curriculum experiences, series on involvement in game contests, and game education related event coverage.
