The video game industry is predicted to be worth an incredible $300bn/£229bn a year by 2025 (Forbes). Sound is a huge part of games – it can turn them from run-of-the-mill shooters to intense, epic, era-defining legends. Your work can be heard and praised by the 2.5bn people who play video games around the world. And with healthy salaries exceeding the average in both the UK and the United States (Glassdoor), designing and creating music and sound for video games is well paid, too.
But it’s a tough industry to get into. With billions of people playing and loving video games, there’s a high number of people vying for the limited number of positions with developers; so, give yourself an advantage and connect with mentors from across the video game industry free of charge.
Gaming Audio has a singular purpose: to help develop the next generation of video game sound designers by making the industry accessible for all. We connect established industry experts with music students to help grow the pipeline of talent to the benefit of everybody.
Get involved in the mentorship programme and give something back to the community and the industry, and help create a pipeline of talent that you can use to grow your games in the future.
