    Description of a Game Developer
    Game Developers, more specifically known as video game developers or video game designers, are software developers and engineers who create video games. Game developers may be involved in various aspects of a game's creation from concept and story writing to the coding and programming. Other potential areas of work for a game developer include audio, design, production and visual arts.

    Duties of a Game Developer
    Many components are involved in the development of a video game. Designers, producers and graphic artists all contribute to the final product. However, programmers and software developers turn the idea into code, which provides the game with its operating instructions. Game and software developers create the core features of a video game. Duties of a game developer may include:

    • Creating story lines and character biographies
    • Conducting design reviews
    • Designing role-play mechanics
    • Creating prototypes for staff and management
    • Documenting game design process
    Entry level and junior game programmers typically use basic tools and languages, such as C++, to add small elements to games. They are also expected to keep up with changing technology. Lead developers and programmers write more complicated code and manage other programmers.
