Gaming Engineer Job Description

Gaming engineers have the fun and exciting job of working with teams of programmers, testers, animators, modelers and Q&A testers to develop and design the latest and greatest video games. A game engineer will most likely be involved in every phase of a particular game's development starting with the fleshing out of an initial concept to thoroughly testing the beta software up until the day of release. Gaming engineers will not only be responsible for ensuring that the game is functional, but also that it provides a pleasant and intuitive user interface. As the career centers around computers, strong skills in both scripting and programming languages will be necessary.
