Games developers are involved in the creation and production of games that range from computer, handhelds, console and arcade games to games on the internet, mobile phones and other gaming platforms. Their work involves either design or programming. Games development is a fast moving, multi-billion pound industry. The making of a game from concept to finished product can take up to three years and involves a team of up to 200 professionals. There are many stages, including creating and designing a game’s look and how it plays, animating characters and objects, creating audio, programming, localisation, testing and producing.
