Hello Friends,

I am a 2010 pass out fresher. I have been selected at [gaming company] Hyderabad. I want to know following, if any one of you work or have worked for [gaming company] in india?
1. What is the scope of gaming in india?
2. Though their starting salary is less how much growth can i expect after 6 months or a year?
3. I have discussed with few experienced people they say game programming is a child thing & i wont be learning new things if i stick with this for a long time & my value will be less than j2ee developer?
4 Which one is more paid a j2ee developer or mobile app developer in india(java me,iphone,android,blackberry)?

Thanks

The gaming industry is a weird part of IT. They generally pay much less than other areas. And they expect their employees to work ridiculous hours.

Why? Supply and demand. Most computer programmers get their start with games. And feel some sort of nostalgia working for a gaming company. So, with lots of people wanting to work for a gaming company, they can pick those who are willing to get paid less and work more.

Asok,

It depends on your interest. I would love to work in animation (games, movies etc.) industry as it is full of creativity. But I never got a chance to work with one. And I am not very sure that because it is gaming company it pays less.

@ Henry I will take care about guidelines in future & thanks for replying. (I thought gaming job is underpaid in india only. But this case is outside india also.)
@ vikas Thanks for replying.

So i guess game programmer job is underpaid & you will not learn new things that can help your career in long term. Any one in India working in game industry have views different than mine?

Thanks
