As fans of video games, I’m sure most of us have wondered how video games are actually made. Some really passionate gamers take the said question to heart and eventually get to help make games themselves. These people become game development professionals.
People who work in the game development industry are a varied bunch. There are game designers, game programmers, game artists/animators, game testers, game producers, and other less common roles. In the Philippines and for several years now, schools have been offering game development courses that enable students to take up the highly-specialized roles that function in creating a video game.
