    So, I've got a job interview at a Frontier Developments (game company) in Cambridge, something that I've been working towards for a long time but was just wondering about the attire that I should wear. Shall I go casual or formal? I want to make a good impression as I really want to get the job. Anyone ever been to interviews at games companies before that can offer advice and possibly give an in-sight into what the interview entails?

    I've never been for an interview at a games company, but always wear formal attire.

    As a programmer, I always dress casual. Casual is the rule of thumb, but might not be so suitable for business positions...

    Yes. I'd be happy to provide critique or advice on that front, if that's what you're looking for. What role did you apply for, anyway?

    Don't dress too smart but don't dress like a hobo. That's the advice I've been given. :P
