Job Description for Video Game Designer

Video game designers generally work to code programs on various platforms (such as computers and gaming systems) to create playable games. Creating a game involves creating a concept and storyline and mapping it out for others on the game design team so they can help with development; designers generally work with a flowchart when creating a game's storyboard. The game must be thoroughly tested to ensure that any bugs or flaws during gameplay are resolved. Video game designers may focus on a particular element of gameplay such as environments, the game's rule system or coordinating the design team's work. Throughout the development process, these professionals must check and recode lines of coding to make any required changes uncovered during testing. They may also conduct testing themselves, including recording any identified bugs or flaws.

Although a degree is not technically required to become a video game designer, many companies prefer a bachelor’s degree in computer science or computer engineering. Previous experience is typically required or preferred as well. Video game designers must have excellent programming and system design skills, work effectively in a team setting and work well on their own with minimal supervision.
