Lost Between Levels is a look at game development communities around the world, and the culture created by the people who live there.
Ugh, Boston... they think everything they do is so great. That's why I moved out of that dump in the first place.
are you sure? if yes what about the stupid designers of RE operation raccoon city ,I am sorry but I'm not talking a bout the total profit of this game I'm talking a bout the original designers those come from original game titles and truly listen to the gamers suggestions
Great feature, which inspire me of an idea of my own as I got some gaming ideas besides I live like 20mins from Boston 'cheers :)
Who care's about Boston. All the great games come from CANADA. Typical americans kissing their own buttocks. Keep living in that bubble.
@WoZe hey Canada leaf boy whats the deal with arrogant better then American comments i always here on games and sites. No problem with Canidans in general but you guys are like the French always bitch about us but when it hits the fan, you guys hide under our skirt. We developed everyting you use now and past. Wepons,PC,electricity, light bulb,food, tv cars games on and on i could go. Just enjoy our games and security etc...we give you with our young American lives. Just say thank you that s all
@WoZe You have Bioware, Ubi montreal. Then?
I would say some great games actually coming from UK, you ready to ROCK?
Rocksteady: Batman Arkham Asylum/City
And of course...the mammoth Rockstar North, the makers behind GTA

This video is great, even inspiring. I bet videogames will become a new form of art sooner or later.
Nice Video GS thanks, here i am sitting in this dark side of earth spending 8 years of my life learning Computer Graphic, Game Designing, while i could go there learn those stuff much easier and faster, i still like to go to Los Angeles though!
All hail Beantown! I moved with my family to central Illinois when I was little,and this flat,empty dump simply can't compare. A good time for most of the rednecks out here is sitting around drinking or talking in some gas station diner all day while the corn and beans grow. Also,virtually no progress in terms of science and technology. The place looks almost exactly as it did back in the late 90s.
What I wouldn't give to go back out there to the world of advancement! I keep hearing talk of "new ideas." It's making me jealous.
@gkhalifa yeah @NiklasW_86 is right, if you win a scholarship you could go to another country. Effort is always awarded my friend
@gkhalifa Depends on what it is you want to do in the industry. A lot of game designers are self-taught in some way or another -- get books from the library on how to do programming in C++, how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and 3D art programs like 3DSMAX and Maya. You can get books on programming video games from Amazon too. Build yourself a portfolio and submit it along with a resume. A degree never hurts -- computer science is good, or a computer art program if you are interested in graphics. Start building your skills early, though, and be ready to adapt as new technology becomes available.
wow guys thanks. but I have a question, what do I need to study basically so I can work in game development ?
@gkhalifa I don't see how that would be a problem for you? There isn't really anything stopping you from moving to another country to work with games development.The beauty about the video games industry is that it's so open and non-biased about hiring international co-workers.
Im from Montreal, I would love to see one about my city! Montreal is becoming one of the most important city for the video game industry.

Crate is in Boston too, currently developing Grim Dawn, a better Diablo. Kickstarter here btw: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crateentertainment/grim-dawn
Um, the schools doesn't have much to do with it, Atlanta has count it, 20 different schools teaching game development. Yet, there is only one company making games in the area.
@Germanviking Erm actually the education system has much to do with it. Harvard and MIT are some of the best schools in the country if not the world. Taking grads from professional institutions such as these makes even better games :)
@c0kemusheen MIT grads generally do not make video games, nor do Harvard grads.
Great job with the show Shaun. No offense to some of the other videos on the site, but this seems to be a nice step up on the production side of things. Looking forward to future episodes.
Thanks for the great video! On behalf of GAMBIT I really appreciate the time you spent getting to know us. We do a ton of events here in Boston and many are webcasted. Join us on facebook to find out what we're doing: https://www.facebook.com/gambitgamelab
This was the most interesting piece of gaming journalism I have seen from Gamespot, or any gaming website for that matter. Extraordinary! Keep up the great work guys!
