The video game industry continues to grow to meet the demand for “at-home” entertainment during uncertain times. While game development involves the full gamut of artistic and technical skillsets, bringing the final product to fruition requires the well-honed programming and coding skills of a Game Developer.
For all intents and purposes, the game developer employs the same set of skills as all software developers, which includes programming software that meets the expressed vision and plan of the development team. However, game developers must also be able to understand and interpret the visual, spatial, and auditory virtual space of a game universe and then programmatically code those aspects using the tools provided.
Finding and recruiting a skillset that combines high-level programming skills with the advanced ability to turn abstract artistic concepts into algorithms and code, will require a comprehensive hiring process. This Hiring Kit: Game Developer, from TechRepublic Premium, provides an adjustable framework that your business can use to find, recruit, and ultimately hire the right person for the job.
