I remember when I was young and still curious to this day. I asked myself how are video games are made. It can be a long process, but after some research I’ll try to break down the process to a brief blog.
The process of making a video game starts with an idea. This could be a concept for a new game, or an improvement on an existing one. There are lots of those and sometimes we don’t point them out. The developers then create a storyline, characters, and levels for the game.
Next, the design team creates sketches and drawings to show what the characters, locations, and objects in the game will look like. They also decide on the colors, sounds, and music that will be used in the game. Imagine hiring all these different people to help create a game. You know if you like making music maybe sent a publisher one of your tracks maybe they’ll use it in a game?
Once the design is complete, the programming team takes over. They use special software to write the code that makes the game work. This includes everything from making the characters move and jump, to making sure the game is challenging but also fun to play. Except for the for the programmers of Dark Souls those guys wanna see you suffer lol.
Finally, the game is tested and refined. The developers make sure everything is working properly and fix any bugs they find. They also listen to feedback from players to see if there are any improvements that can be made.
That’s a simple overview of how video games are made. With the help of creative minds, advanced technology, and a lot of hard work, video games have become a billion dollar industry now, and as long as someone has an idea, video games will continue to be created for everyone to enjoy!
