Thank you for the excellent article. I teach game dev and collect useful articles to share with students. I also played the ASOIAF M&B mod and you did excellent work on that. It was fun.
You mentioned some of the math and logic skills that were tested at interviews for an economic systems designer role. Do you agree with James Portnow that game schools emphasize “game” skills over team and creativity skills? How can people demonstrate skills that particular interviewers or hirers don’t necessarily mention or ask about?
