Episode 4: Design 101

Kicking off our new 101 episodes is special guest and BioWare World Designer, Eric Young. We talk about what to expect from most design departments, common misconceptions, as well as a breakdown of the different types of jobs available. If you have ever had questions about what game designers really do, don't miss this episode.

From now on, whenever we have an overview episode about a particular department, we will label this as a 101 episode. All other episodes will go more in depth about specific job or theme, such as the "tech art" or "gaining experience" episodes.
