    You should look at 3DS Max, student addition.

    Most level designing software is all in house. Try building up your art building skills with max, building a level with all the art assets, and also look at programs like NeverWinter Nights and stuff, they release their level builder with the application. It'll give you an idea what people use. Generally also you need to be able to do some light scripting, scripting is like a cut down programming language so you can program the characters and events in the game.

    BTW another thing you should look at when you leave school is there are schools, uni programs that specialise in games development. Look into those and see how you go with that.

    Why is it that no one actually bothers to apply in the traditional sense for these roles on Sumea, like with a covering email and zip file of their work and resume, or at least an attached resume and link to their website or something.

    These threads aren't meant for people to "apply" for jobs with.

    'These jobs aren't meant for people to "apply" for jobs with.'
    Why the hell not? (okay, there are some pretty good job sites, and also an etiquette that should be followed, but isn't that corporate policy? Well anyway, I'm glad such discussion takes place and also to see representation from the company that posted the Blog.

    You'll may well find, that people who can think outside the box or rules or conventions are successful in industries that do not necessarily follow strict corporate policies. :)
