Computer and Video Game Designers
Computer and video game designers, also known as game developers, create the ideas and interactivity for games. These games are played on various platforms, or media, such as video consoles and computers, digital devices (smart phones, tablets, iPads, etc.), and online. Designers generate ideas for new game concepts, including sound effects, characters, story lines, and graphics.
Designers either work for companies that make the games or create the games on their own and sell their ideas and programs to companies that produce them.
