Game developers also test the games and debug programs and solve complex technical problems that occur within the game's production.

There are different kinds of game developers like video game developers, indie developers, AAA developers, 1st party developers and even 2nd party developers. Game developers work in tandem with professionals like with game designers, artists and other staff involved in the design process in order to create a quality product to schedule. Game designers design the structure of the game and develop its layout.
