Discussion I want to get into Freelance Game Dev.

Let's Clone

Yo Homies!
I've recently started doing some freelance work, building a web form, but I really want to find a gig making a game.
If any of you have stories/anecdotes then please share them!

I'm working on finishing up a couple projects for a resume. But I would appreciate pointers on what looks good for people who are looking to hire a dev. And any information I can get on methods for getting started with finding a gig.

I appreciate your time.
