Video: Facing down failure as a freelancing game dev

Freelancing comes with many failures and intimidations but some friendly advice can help game developers learn to roll with those punches and make the most of their project-to-project aspirations.

In this GDC Summer AMA, writer, narrative designer, and freelance extraordinaire Zaire Lanier fields questions from freelance-curious attendees and offers advice on how devs can go from being a lonely and unsuccessful freelancer to something more.

Learning to navigate the sometimes frequent failures that come with freelancing takes time and many people don’t realize the amount of effort it takes to get even a toe in the door, making chats like the one embedded above with Zaire all the more valuable to the game dev community.

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page. Finally, current subscribers with access issues can contact GDC Vault technical support.
