Why and How to Become a Game Designer?

First and foremost, game designers are specialists who have extensive knowledge about the gaming industry. They are capable of identifying the features that work, and which diminish the user experience. Besides loving games, game designers are the people that decide the way a game will look. For the most part, game designers repeat and polish the time-tested strategies, but sometimes, they take more unusual routes to test their ideas.

Game designers are valued not only for their creative mindsets but also for their technical background. For instance, such specialists are expected to be confident when working with Blender, Adobe Photoshop, and Unity. Therefore, you need to understand prototyping, modeling, visual effects, compositing, and other critical concepts of game development.
