Summary Electronic gaming has progressed a long way since the days the first Space Invaders machines began to appear in local shopping centers. Today, electronic games are highly sophisticated and interactive, part of a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide - an industry that is now larger than the film and music industries combined. Ask many keen game players about their ideal job, and the answer would be designing or testing electronic games. This Australian-made, curriculum fit program hears from gamers and game developers alike, taking a look behind the scenes at the gaming industry, the making of games, use of games for leisure and education, and taking a glimpse into the future of games. This program is essential viewing for students who are researching the gaming industry, looking at designing their own games, or interested in a career in the electronic gaming industry
