VIDEO GAME DEVELOPER

June 19, 2017, 2:45 p.m.

Video game developers help make the imaginary seem real. They turn the vision of the game artists and designers into reality by utilizing programming and coding languages.
 
Video game developers work among a team of professionals, whose collective efforts are responsible for the development of video games on various platforms, such as game consoles, computers, mobile phones and the Internet.


Some video game developers, such as those that work for companies that produce relatively simple games, may be responsible for a wide variety of tasks in the development of a video game, ranging from the development of the concept for a video game, to the design and programming of that game.
 
Other video game developers, such as those that work for companies that produce complex games, may be responsible for focusing on one highly complex and specialized area, such as developing the core engine that drives the whole game; the 3D graphics component; music and digital sounds; or network programming, used to connect players online. 

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Many employers prefer to hire candidates for Video Game Developer jobs that have a bachelor’s degree in a field such as computer science, software engineering, or a specialized field such as video game development.

Entry without a degree is sometimes possible particularly if you have relevant experience, although most people who work in games are graduates.

• Able to translate the gameplay’s vision into programming
• Find it easy to visualize code as real game elements
• Have high attention to detail for catching glitches and bugs

• Be able to work efficiently and under pressure
• Thrive in a fast-paced environment
• Solid working knowledge of a variety of scripting languages
• Solid working knowledge of object oriented programming languages
• Posses strong knowledge of programming data structures, logic, and algorithms
