Even for the smallest and most independent developers, creating a successful modern video game requires the coordination of designers, programmers, testers, artists, musicians, animators, and a multitude of other talented personnel. Getting all these moving parts to work together, synchronize their production, and do it on time and on budget is the role of the Video Game Producer.
Like any project manager in application development, the Video Game Producer must organize, coerce, cajole, and coordinate talented people of various technical expertise and keep everyone moving toward the common goal of producing a compelling video game. However, the Video Game Producer must also understand the gaming industry, the capabilities and the limitations of the technology, and the unique challenges associated with game development.
Recruiting a Video Game Producer with the right combination of technical and game development experience will require a comprehensive screening process.
