Skyrim: Falskaar. This is how to apply for a job in the gaming industry like a boss.

In a new article at the Secular View I write about the 19 year-old who decided to apply for a job with Bethesda in the most epic way: by spending a full year making one of the greatest mods of all time.

Aside from the voice acted characters and the new dungeon, the mod includes a new land mass about a third the size of the entire map of the original game as well as an original soundtrack commissioned by Velicky and composed by Adamm Khuevrr.  Part of it can be heard in the trailer for the mod:

All of this from a young man who is teaching himself.  That’s passion.  I’ve seen entire games put out by studios with budgets that aren’t as impressive as what Valicky has managed with Falskaar.  Anybody who loves their craft like Valicky clearly loves his can be taught whatever skills he’s missing.
