    Often times I browse Blizzard's job applications only to remind myself of the fact that I'll never get to work there.

    This one is for gameplay and also specifically states Warcraft III^^
    The requirement “A minimum of 5 years’ game programming experience, including experience shipping at least one title” is a killer though; I'd never get that sort of background in Portugal. :p

    Opportunities are somewhat close to you. You'd just have to visit your neighbours.

    What surprises me is that Miniclip, of all things, has such a large presence in your country.

    Where are the Ubisofts and EAs of the world?
