While I am in NY, too far away for me.

Starting salary in the $20,000 USD range with commission? I'd rather work at Wal-Mart for the wages they are paying – and salary – not hourly. Sounds like signing up for Slave Labor Camp 101.

Expect Long hours.

This means, expect to work 12-16 hours a day, weekends too, and you will LIKE IT! I guess it is employment if you don't have a job. I think I will keep my day job. My fiancee' at the accounting firm makes more money in a secretary/administrative support position and gets paid overtime for every hour over 40 that she works. The salary isn't specifically listed, but low twenties is starting at around $10 USD per hour through around $14 USD and change per hour for a 40 hour per week non-salaried position. Not exactly "salary" wages for the position.

That's how it goes in the game industry. Low wages, strange hours. You really have to be a maniac. It's hard to make a decent living, and almost nobody actually does (or, when you do, it's because you work for Games Workshop, who will then replace you with someone willing to work for less.)

At least they are being honest about it.

You can always tell who the game developers are at the conventions by the way they keep an arm wrapped around their food tray as if somebody is coming to steal their french fries.

Nice gig for a young guy who thinks he'll be the next Steve Jackson or Kevin Siembieda. God help him if he succeeds.
