Hi guys. Get all your coding and game development done before the children come along.

I'm serious.

You CAN'T code with kids in the house.

Go, go do it now, before it's too late.

thinking about it a bit more, I think you are correct; expectation is the problem. "Game Dev sounds like fun!", until you're asked to build a view matrix. We can expect them to have a genuine interest in something they haven't hade much chance to be exposed to.

We have a moderately high high-school maths requirement for applicants, so in most cases its not ability that's lacking. (although we do have our fair share of those who just "don't get" coding. Or linear algebra. Or calculus. Or mechanics. Or...)

fair comment about interest v's expectations, but if someone is really interested at least they'll be prepared to put the required work in.
