From Console to Career: How to Turn a Minecraft Passion into a Future

While some may claim otherwise, playing Minecraft can lead to much more than just hours (and hours) of entertainment. Whether you find yourself engaged by the graphics, the coding you can learn or the stories on multiplayer servers like Mineplex, there are several career paths to be found in the world of Minecraft. Here are just a few:

Programmer
Programmers write lines of code to control how the game operates. From artificial intelligence programming which determines how characters respond to actions to graphics programmers which create the 2D and 3D graphics, the options are almost limitless when it comes to a career in programming. Minecraft is one of the only video games that teaches its players to code, so young players are already getting a head start on their career.

 

  

Animator
With an average salary of more than $75,000 per year, this career path is pretty great for game lovers. An animator controls the movements in the game. Whether it’s the object or the character, the animator is responsible for making the game appear more realistic (or less when considering Minecraft). 

Artist
While animators are in control of movement, artists are in control of how the game looks to the player. From packaging and promotional materials to battle and landscape, artists are responsible for the visual style of the game.
 

Content Designer
Every game needs a storyline, and if video games and stories are your passion, writing might be a great option for you. From the plot to the character script, game writing is never boring.
 

Audio Engineer
Audio engineers create an array of sounds for video games. They mix and edit the sound effects using high-tech programs to create the creative, technical and cinematic sounds.
 

Architect
While not directly related to gaming, Minecraft is special in that it encourages its players to build and design, which is exactly what architects do. Whether choosing a traditional route or a digital one, the core basics of this career can be learned in Minecraft.
