Quality of Life Issues
01:56 PM
    Discuss This!


The IGDA published an open letter entitled "Quality of Life Issues are Holding Back the Game Industry." Here's a snippet:

"Despite the continued success of the games industry, the immaturity of current business and production practices is severely crippling the industry . The recent frenzy of discussion over impassioned testimony about the horrible working conditions within much of the industry attests to the reality of this often unspoken disease.

As the professional association that unites the game development community and serves as its voice, the International Game Developers Association is deeply disturbed by this vicious cycle and is working to better the situation. Improving the quality of life of game developers is an IGDA priority."
