    117 Don’t Overestimate The Game Industry but Don’t UnderEstimate Yourself with Trynn Check

    Trynn Check is an independent game designer from DePaul University. She works at iThrive Games that promote mental health and teen thriving. She also has her studio called Intrynnsic Entertainment. We talk about her journey of going to school, working, and breaking into the game industry. Breaking into the game industry is hard, and entry-level jobs pay low, and she needed to keep her corporate responsibility to pay off school. It did not stop her from investing in skills like in Udemy or implementing game design elements into her job. She also pointed out not to assume your game is not worth it because there might be people who will resonate. So take small steps, be self-motivated, and make your game.

    114 Get Voice Actors Early in the Project, Practice Emotional Agility, and Fix Your Website with Jay Britton

    Award-winning British voice actor, Jay Britton has done 50 titles and over 300 characters ranging from indie studios to AAA developers. Games include Divinity Original Sin 2, FIFA 17, Starcraft 2, and more.
    We discuss:
    Voice actors should be experts in creating characters Get them involved in a project as soon as possible Table reads is a great way to establish characters 90% of having a successful voice acting career is what you do outside the booth Foster emotional agility because your lines will have an angry element to it, then the next line will be sad, then the next line will be happy. On your website, have a video game demo and an email on the front page Find people who will give you truthful criticism Use a clicker to create spikes during recording so it’s easier to find that particular point when editing ***

    113 Trust Your Inner Voice When Composing Music with Mikolai Stroinski

    113 Trust Your Inner Voice When Composing Music with Mikolai Stroinski

    Mikolai Stroinski is a music composer that has worked on the Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2 trailer, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and much more.
    We discuss:
    Think not just as a composer but as a video game maker as well. You don’t want to get too attached to your music because it might not fit the game. Trust your inner voice because it's a sign to either continue or stop composing. Study different music vocabularies and play lots of different games. Don't just study video game music. Be a good human being because good karma ricochets back to you. Don't think about just making money. Think about how you can contribute more and positively affect people's lives.
