Ever wondered what working with video games is like?

He gets his chance when a bit of luck helps him get employed at a large gaming company. Things do not go to plan however and he learns that the gaming industry isn’t the land of honey he thought it would be and he begins to wonder if it was all worth it.  Follow Frank as he experiences the launch of a new console launch and the creation of award winning games while trying to test his way up the game industry ladder.  His stories are full of funny behind the scenes anecdotes of what life working in gaming is really like. It gives a great insight into the companies, processes and people involved in making video games and is a must read for anyone thinking of joining the games industry.
