Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullAhi wa barakatuhu,

It will be Makrooh Tahrīmī (close to Ḥarām) for you to work for a gaming or movie studio as this constitutes the direct assistance towards those things that are impermissible.

Alternatively, you may use your skills to design adverts for companies which is free from impermissible elements for example.
