I became a game designer almost completely by accident in 1989. In those days, if you could program a computer, had some writing ability, and were willing to work for food, you could get a job at a game company and become a designer. No schools existed to teach game design, so you had to learn on the job, apprentice-style.

Nowadays it's a popular job, so it's a lot more competetive. And also there are schools that have game design programs! Heather went to one, in fact - maybe she'll talk about it....
