Layoffs Strike Starbreeze

Starbreeze Studios is cutting 25 jobs, reports GamesIndustry.biz (registration required), saying they follow the completion of the Swedish developer's Syndicate shooter for EA. They also note that Peter Tornquist will resign from Starbreeze's board with no replacement planned. "It is sad that we are forced to make staff cutbacks affecting employees," says Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark. "But we have to reduce staff after the final delivery of the Syndicate."

My son really wants to be a game designer. He's taking computer programming courses right now while also doing online schooling for videogame development. He is his own man, so far be it from me to tell him what to do, but every time I read an article such as this I send it to him.

The videogame industry is brutal, thankless, and unrewarding for all but a select lucky few.

Tell him to go indie and never look back.

Better still get a degree in physics or maths and make yourself invaluable. Guys that have that and code can write their own ticket in the games industry.
