DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Modern digital video games are extremely sophisticated applications requiring efficient memory management, loading techniques, collision detection, data transformation, database management, streaming protocols, physics, audio support and platform specific system interaction. These low-level technical aspects of game development are the responsibility of the Game Engine Programmer.
Therefore, the Game Engine Programmer must be proficient in the basic foundational interactions of the CPU and GPU with the game engine and the hardware platform chosen for the game project. While similar in nature, the basic technical requirements are slightly different for personal computers versus consoles versus mobile devices. Your choice of Game Engine Programmer should reflect the chosen platform(s) of the project.
