A Twitter user was amazed at a barker he met who sketches while keeping an eye on parked cars and has dreams of becoming a game developer.

Twitter user @Gtsby_ shared some pictures of the unidentified barker’s intricate sketches that featured a “Super Mario” course challenge and robots, among others.

“He then showed me¬†sketches of plans he made because he’d like to be a game developer someday! I’m amazed,” the user wrote in a follow-up tweet.

The Twitter user was also able to interview the barker, who mentioned that he is a “fanatic” of the popular video game “Super Mario.”

“Fanatic kasi ako ng Super Mario. Kumbaga mula pagkabata, adik na’ko sa Super Mario,” the barker explained a video.

Other Twitter users expressed their amazement at the barker’s talent and hoped he would reach his dreams to become a game developer.

A barker is someone on the streets who calls, facilitates or convinces commuters to board a particular public utility vehicle for the purpose of extracting an amount from the driver.

They also¬†oblige drivers to park their public utility vehicles in certain spots‚ÄĒusually in densely populated areas‚ÄĒwhile they call for passengers.

Developing games: An actual cool job

A game developer designs and creates video games for computer and video game consoles.

They are highly involved in the conceptualization and the execution of game creation, according to a website for education seekers.

Usually, game developers have a degree in computer science, software engineering or any other related field.

“Game developers may be involved in various aspects of a game’s creation from concept and story writing to the coding and programming. Other potential areas of work for a game developer include audio, design, production and visual arts,” notes.

The Philippines is still a minor player in the international game development field with only a 0.02% share in the $90 billion global industry as of August 2018.
