  • Providing the development team with overall designs and visions, followed by detailed design documentation and communication of the features for agile implementation.
  • You’ll need to love playing all kinds of games, which must translate into an ability to benchmark your competition in order to identify best practices and design mechanisms, then use these findings to iterate constructively on your own game designs.

  • Supporting and guiding game designers within the studio.
