GJH Links

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to adding a Links area to the blog.  I’ve broken it into 2 sections, and I plan on continually adding to it.  The first section is for “Friends of GJH” – these are companies or people that we’ve got a close relationship with.  They’re all up … Read More

Top North American Cities for Game Development – Part 2

A while back, I did a post that attempted to paint a rough picture of which cities had the most game development going on.  The idea behind the list was that knowing where the studios are at = knowing where the jobs are at.  It’s been several months since I put that together, so I figured I’d do a follow-up … Read More
