First time poster.. be gentle! :)
I've just been made an offer for a position at a local games studio (this'll be my first job in the industry, yay!). I'm very excited.. but I have a question about the contract (or about contracts in general, in the industry). It basically says that if my employment is terminated that I'm not allowed to work for another games company for six months. Is this pretty standard in the games industry? That seems pretty harsh; if your bread and butter is games then can they really stop you from working elsewhere in the industry?
