This article is dedicated to the most interesting and popular news among students - about computer science and game design.
What is this direction of game design and what is the task of a game designer?
The obvious side is the development of the game, the rules and the process itself. In addition to the fact that the designer needs to determine what the game itself will be, the plot and what actions the hero will have, he also needs to create an "emotional" background for the game itself, which will set the mood. There are hundreds of varieties of what a game designer can do. The simplest division is between “technical” and “art” designers. The technician deals with algorithms, numbers - character damage level, points earned, time and other "mathematics". The art designer is responsible for graphics, sound design, texts and scripts, 3D modeling and animation.
