Creation of a Video Game

Creation of a Video Game

Most of the gamers do not have an idea of how tedious it is to create something as complex as a video game. In fact, there’s a subdivision of software development that is wholly dedicated to the development of video games.

The first step in creating a video game is identifying the idea and the target group that you wish to focus on. This is important because in the business world the customer is usually the primary focus of goods and services produced. Therefore, the creator has to know what the expectations of the target market are. This step is critical because it is in such scenarios that a programmer may request for funding from corporations.

The next step is creating a document that expounds on the concept that the game will run on. This report will include details like: the language that will be used in creating the gaming software, the modules that will be required by the game in order for the game to function, the minimum machine specifications that the game will require in order for it to be implemented and a list of any other software that the gaming software may be dependent on.

  • Implementation

Implementation of the document that describes the design is usually one of the longest processes in design. All the details described in the design document are then translated from the written form to a practical form. Part of the transformation will include the use of integrated development environments (IDM) to write lines of code that will be responsible for the functioning of the game. These lines of codes are usually very complicated because they capture the process by which the game will capture, scrutinize, process and react to the different data presented to the computer. It will also deal with networking aspects if present and all the components related to graphics.

  • Testing

The final portion of the tangram is implemented software testing whereby the programmer simulates the functioning of the program on several machines in order to capture all the necessary loopholes and also eliminate any bugs that may be present.
