So the beginning of my first internship has been quite interesting. I currently work at a private company called GameSharkz LLC. For the program, I am able to work remotely, since they are based in Pennsylvania, and the internship is unpaid. However, I do look forward to working with the crew and learning about the process the company goes through to make a game.
From what I understand, there are around 20 people working within the company, including interns like me. The game developer company I work at seems to specialize with sports games, that are often displayed in tournaments open to the public. However, they also make their own games, which I will be part of. For my internship, it seems that I’ll be working as a concept artist for the different game assets (characters, elements, etc).
