The game industry is a living breathing community that is full of opportunities! If you want to make it in game audio you have to get yourself out there. Landing a first gig might seem like luck but the amount of time these composers have spent attending conventions, indie game meetups, video call events and any other social gatherings for game developers tells a different story. It was hard work and intentional consistent effort. You might make the most beautiful, moving piece of music anyone has ever heard but if you don’t put it out there for the world to hear, no one is going to be knocking on your door to hire you.
