PixelPop Festival Conference Session:

This Will (Not) Be Easy

Saturday, 12:30 pm - 12:50 pm

We live in an age where many of us are told to “follow our passion.” On the surface, this is great advice. Who doesn’t want to feel charged and energized at work all day? *Especially* if we get to make games all the time.

Unfortunately, this sort of advice leaves us wondering why things are as difficult as they are. We struggle, flail, wonder if we’re “cut out” for our work, and then ultimately, quit. The truth is, things shouldn’t be easy or fun 100% of the time. In fact, they won’t be that way *most* of the time.

Join audio designer and industry veteran Akash Thakkar (Hyper Light Drifter, Destiny, Concrete Genie) as he gives practical, actionable wisdom that anyone can use to navigate the tough-but-necessary work that we must all do to find our way in this industry.
