How Video Games are Made?

Games start out as a story. This is called preproduction. Each of the areas are roughly sketched out, and instructions are made. The game is in its early stages, and is much like a baby. The main characters are made now, and start to fill in the personality of the game. Next, the characters are made into digital forms, so their actions can be mapped out to make realistic movement. Then the environment is created to help give the characters a place to interact with. The creators of a game then start working on the code. This controls all physics, and logic aspects of the game. Postproduction is the final stage of video game creation. This involves testing the game, marketing it, and distribution. People are hired to test the game, and help find the bugs which the developers will have to fix before they distribute the game. Look here for more information:
