Question by Erik T*****: Do you think I can get into game design with a Studio Art & Graphic Design degree?
I have all these great ideas for computer games (competitive online game style games with themes) but when I look up things about "Graphic Design" I see it being more about people making advertisements and labels.
I'd hate to think I am wasting my time by getting this degree.

Wolf Studios is thrilled to announce War of Words Apocalypse for iOS. Apocalypse, the newest entry in the War of Words series of games, combines the dynamic world of turn-based strategy with the classic word game. In addition to letters, Apocalypse adds Action Tiles including Nuclear Bomb, Black Hole, Poison, and Portal.
Players can destroy the entire board with a Nuclear Bomb, poison their opponents over several turns, zap an entire row of letters with a Blaster, or play their words through Portals for a mind-bending crossword experience.
Players start at level one and work their way up as they play. Leveling up unlocks new Action Tiles and board layouts. With the launch of each new game, players choose their board and which Action Tiles they want to use, providing endless strategic combinations and high replay value.
War of Words Apocalypse is ideal for word game fans who enjoy a healthy dose of strategy and action. There are explosions at every turn, and players who find themselves on the losing side can often use Action Tiles to regain the lead.
Based on the standard, online, crossword gameplay loved by word gamers worldwide
Action Tiles take the game beyond mere letters
Players level up as they play, unlocking new tiles and boards as they go
Support for up to four players in a single match

"This is the ultimate action-packed word game," commented Jeremy Fuller of Wolf Studios. "There is so much destruction going on, so many chances to win even after you think you're losing, that it really appeals to players interested in turn-based strategy games. At this point it's still a word game at heart, but we're way beyond that now."
