Remember that perfect shot you got off in the final moments of a match that won the game for your team? Or how about that time you just got into cover on your last sliver of health when the enemy team were almost on top of you? Those moments are brought to you by artists, coders, designers and network engineers all working together to help craft that perfect moment you talk about for years.
The ability to quickly create, test and iterate on gameplay features is paramount for game development, and in the always-on realm even more so. This is where prototyping comes in, from whole levels to specific features, the prototyping team is where ideas become reality.
ART & DESIGN
Game Designers and artists are an integral component when it comes to creating games. They are creatives who love getting stuck in, conceiving prototypes and refining and balancing gameplay, creating 2D or 3D visual elements and getting to the essence of why a game mechanic is fun and memorable.
They work with all teams to problem-solve within real-time environments, and are masters of agile execution, and considered communication.
