Before you start your game testing career, you need to know the members of a game development team, their main work, and the workflow.
- The game development team, main work and workflow
Generally, a game development team is composed of producer, planner, programmer, game artist, and game tester.
A producer is the manager of the project who is in charge of game research and development, game operation, team management, and all affairs of the project.
The work of a planner includes plot design, system rules design, numerical design, and game level design.
While for the game artists, scenario, UI, original painting, and animation are their main jobs.
Usually, programmers are divided into front-end engineers and back-end engineers. The front-end engineer takes charge of the presentation and logic of the client-side, while the back-end engineer is responsible for the verification of logic and data of the server-side.
