Welcome to Game Design
A game designer devises and tests the basic ideas behind a game. You’re like a puppeteer, making the gamer do what you want and creating the ultimate player experience. You know exactly how to use the story, the setting and the game rules in order to achieve this. So as a game designer, you have a lot of influence over the game as a whole. Sometimes, you’re involved with the details too, so you need to know enough about game art and programming. But overall, you’re the one who pulls the strings.
