I  was a lone wolf and never had been a part of a lasting community, but EGD has connected me with others. These connections, along with the community’s friendliness and openness to different opinions and backgrounds, have allowed me to have the experiences necessary to build into where I am. 

My internship is essentially my full-time job now, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it if not for the people at EGD.

Anybody who knows me knows I'm bad at League of Legends. I asked if there was something for people in bronze like me, and they were trying to pull a team together.

What I got out of [EGD] was not only the relationships and friends that I still talk to, but this methodology or thought process… a way of seeing games that's very valuable. EGD made me realize [becoming a game developer was] actually something that I could theoretically do. I would never have done that if it weren't for my time at EGD.
