Gaming is no longer a child’s play. It has become a fad among the millennials. Games now have a massive audience than before, thanks to the rise of internet penetration, combined with dirt cheap mobile data prices in India.

According to a report by industry body Nasscom, India’s mobile games market is expected to reach 628 million users, and will be worth $1.1 billion by 2020.

With many emerging startups focusing on gaming, the industry has a number of jobs to offer such as animator, creative director, game artist, game designer, etc.

However, the job that is much in demand in the ecosystem at present is that of a game designer. A game designer creates a virtual world along with the setting, story flow, characters, game levels, and rules. They conceive original ideas and build prototypes that can be used in a range of devices and platforms. They enhance the user experience design and work on the minute details of the game. These are the people who ensure the games we play are engaging and interactive.

If you are a pro at programming skills and are creative, then a career in gaming might be the right choice to make.
