Quality game development involves many talent sets including:

  • Producing / management
  • Game play design
  • Game world design
  • Programming
  • 2D / 3D art and animation
  • Character design
  • Audio (voice-over and / or sound effects)
  • Music
  • Video production (if a full-motion video game)
  • Testing and quality assurance
  • Marketing

Even a “small” mobile game, if a quality title, will have the talent sets of most of those listed. As such, video game production offers a robust economic impact when factored as a creative economy.
