Online Gameplay Programmer

Online games, unlike offline console or PC titles, are in a constant state of evolution. As new players join the community, and early adopters tire of the same old thing, developers must find ways to constantly keep the game fresh and exciting while also improving performance and functionality.

Epic Games

Epic Games is not only the award-winning studio that brought the Gears of War franchise to the masses, but it also builds one of the most widely used game engines: the Unreal engine. Titles from outside developers built on the Unreal platform include Mass Effect 2 and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Retro Studios

Retro Studios is the video game development studio founded by Jeff Spangenberg and responsible for the Metroid series. In May of 2002, Nintendo acquired Retro and reclassified the studio as a first-party developer of the Japanese company.

Usability Researcher

Quality assurance testers are concerned with quantitative information, identifying and recording bugs in a game’s programming. Usability researchers, on the other hand, aim to track the qualitative response of a player, measuring the enjoyment factor when interacting with the game.

Sequencing Programmer

A musical score for film, television, or a video game endures several stages between the composer’s pen and the live orchestra recording. One of the final checkpoints is with the sequencing programmer, who converts sheet music to a simplified digital track.

Turbine, Inc.

Johnny Monsarrat, Jeremy Gaffney, Kevin Langevin, and Timothy Miller founded Turbine, though Warner Brothers Home Entertainment Group recently acquired the company. The company has been credited with pioneering the 3-D massively multiplayer role-playing game in 1999 with the release of Asheron’s Call, an online title.

Localization Producer

Localization is the highly involved process of preparing a game developed in one part of the world, to be released in another; it entails enacting linguistic changes, as well as augmentations concerning culture, hardware, and software.

Nintendo

Most famous for video game consoles and characters like Mario and Luigi, Nintendo was originally formed in Japan as a card game company called Nintendo Koppai. Before venturing into the video game industry, the company experimented with numerous other ventures, including a taxi company, food company, and television network.

Production Coordinator

Artists and scripters are adept at developing world-class MMOs and first-person shooters, but left to operate an office, inevitably rival factions would be warring over the supply closet and rationing what little scraps of carbs and caffeine remain in the kitchen. Even in free spirited, creative environments like a game studio, there must be one who keeps the wheels turning and ensures that the team functions like a well-oiled machine.

Sledgehammer Games

Glen Schofield (creator of Dead Space) and Michael Condrey, both veterans of Visceral Games, founded Sledgehammer Games in 2009. The development studio is a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, located in the San Francisco Bay area.
