Mariette urges the Roadtrippers to incorporate their passions into their work - even if they face criticism from others. Moving north, the Roadtrippers arrange a visit with Vicki Smith, a game designer at Vicarious Visions. Vicki shares her circuitous route to game design, explaining that she initially abandoned her own dreams in favor of following her parents' expectations. In offering advice to the Roadtrippers, she stresses the importance of being well-rounded, and educating oneself in a wide range of disciplines - even if they don't particularly interest you. That way, you have an arsenal of knowledge to inform the work you do. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG
