Yeah, I don't think it'll be easy. I heard making mobile games is where the money is at right now, since mobile gaming is BIG at the moment.
Mechanical engineering? That's got to be a good industry to have a job in. Intership? Is that where you learn off other people while working there and get paid for a certain amount of time, and they can decide if they want you in their company?
That's understandable. But really? Game development huh, I heard it's not easy. I'm going into mechanical engineering this year. I will need as much focus possible. Other than that, I landed an internship with a company D&B (Dun & Bradstreet) working with a lot of software people in the business intelligence sector. Since I am an intern, I don't do much so with my free time I ROM hack.
