Video Game Designer

Video game designers create the core features of video games, including storylines, game-play mechanics and character biographies. They document all aspects of formal design, using mock-up screenshots, sample menu layouts, gameplay flowcharts and other graphical devices. Designers guide and collaborate with production staff to produce games as designed and achieve appropriate visual style.
