Freelance game designers get a long vacation

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with the quantity of projects on my plate at the moment, but apparently as a game designer, I only have to wait four months until I get a long vacation.  Of course, they don’t mention that a long vacation will involve looking for the next gig…

From Great Careers with Long Vacations:

“Freelance Game Designer

As many a game designer will tell you, game development companies only produce a few titles a year. A production may take four months to complete, with work piling up at burn-out levels as the game advances deep into the production schedule. That’s why companies find it advantageous to hire designers on a freelance basis. Do the job and you’ll be asked back again when another idea hits the table. That means plenty of time between gigs to relax at the beach. ”
