One of the many things that my studies in success have consistently directed me towards is forming a Mastermind. The word may sound fancy but it is simply the idea of 2 or more people who meet together to share advice and ideas.
In game development especially, a mastermind would be extremely helpful. Sharing resources, pitfalls, and ideas in something so complicated is extremely beneficial to all involved.
So a few months ago I started looking into this a little more seriously. I have not found or formed a mastermind as yet, but I did find an opportunity to join one remotely.
The club has monthly dues but for someone just starting out in game development it sounds like a great opportunity (especially if you are interested in Unity).
Game Devs Like You
In addition to the club, Chris also runs the Game Devs Like You podcast in which he interviews people in game development. I have only listened to the first couple episodes so far but they are fantastic. The first episode is with a game dev who is only 12 years old (what’s your excuse?).
It is an encouraging and informative podcast and I will be adding it to my Ultimate List of Game Development Podcasts
If you don’t already have a group to discuss games and game design with, consider looking for one in your area or online.
