I have been working in the Software Development industry for the past 7 years. In that time I've worked with multiple technologies and been part of many different teams.
Recently I've realized I don't enjoy the field and I would like to be a Game Developer instead. The problem is that I have no idea to what extent I can "market" the skills I already have.
I understand that I'd have to start from a Junior position most likely but do you think my background as a Software Engineer will be worth something? Should I try to focus on that during interviews or in my resume?
Has anyone done any similar "jump" between career paths?
