So today I had a meeting with the CEO of a local independent game company. The meeting went pretty well. I made a website showing off my main project; Phocas Island 2. He was impressed with it and understood the limits I was working under. I'd say my chances of getting this job are average to high. He said straight out that he would say no right away even to someone with a college degree in game animation/graphics. From the images I showed him he said he could feel that I have a passion for this type of work. He also discussed my getting a newer computer (which he wouldn't do if I didn't have a chance at the job). For now, he gave me two programs to play around with (Blender and Unity 3d) until next Thursday for the follow up.
I've never thought of making a job out of game design, and here I am with a chance at a dream. I hope I get it, would be great to develop with other people in a room instead of alone on some hobby project.
