Games Developer

“If you love computer games and enjoy using your imagination, this could be ideal for you.”

Computer games developers produce games for PCs and games consoles. They also produce games for the Internet and mobile phones. The work could involve making new games or updating existing titles.

Most computer games developers have a qualification. However employers may be more interested in your software skills and experience.
