So I'm in Australia and currently studying literature, English and all the works. I also love video games with a passion and it's my ultimate dream to one day write for rpg's. I've played thousands of hours on rpg's, I've studied Fallout 1&2's stories for hours on end figuring out what makes them work, and what to learn from them.
I'm at a point in my life where I have two option, either go into the Army and cruise along in a pretty attainable, well paying career. Or I can attempt to make it into gaming as a writer. However as you can tell, I'm Australian, so naturally I have to move to the US if I even hope to get into this industry.
Currently I'm the lead writer for Fallout Online: Desert Europe. Doing this has only reminded me more of why I want to write for video games and why I love the industry so much. I also have a few friends in the US that are also attempting to get into gaming and we've had ideas on what to do if we actually made a game, some of which we've acted upon by applying them to a pen and paper game.
I suppose what I'm attempting to ask is how do I viably find a way to get into this industry as someone who is out of the US? It's my ultimate dream to write good stories for video games, even if I get payed less than what I would in the Army.
P.S if this doesn't belong on this board, feel free to remove it mods.
