From a Srudent

Chin Encho
A 2nd year student in the Game Creator Department
From Taiwan
Konami Digital Entertainment Inc.

I was thinking of studying games when I was in junior high school. I love games and I want to get a job related to games. So the best and shortest way to do so is to study in Japan. I thought this way and came here. When I was in college I was overwhelmed by the joy of programming and making things, and since then I have dreamed of working in the game business as a professional programmer. Here in Nihon Kogakuin there are many teachers and superiors. The teachers gave me not only specialist knowledge but also information of game business and career guidance. They were of great help to me.
