The problem was most of the job offers were for designers, game developers, or sound engineers while I and my friend were from a managerial background.

To be honest the first weeks, I didn´t do much of thinking or execution.
Instead, I purchased 7 different games of the ´Assasin´s Creed´ franchise. I spent 2 weeks wandering in those different words and historical cities.
