What Are Game Developers? A View From the Future
The Atlantic
I squinted at the discolored reading pad I'd borrowed from the archives.
Vincas Calvii's insight:

What are game developers? That's a simple question but many still do not fully understand who they are. The first definition that most people come up with, is those programmers and designers who create the games. Yes, indeed it's true, but is that all it means to be a game developer? The answer is No. Reading this article will bring you to further understanding of a life of a game developer. A lot of game developers want to create their own games and work independently, not relying on any producers. But, the result isn't always positive, many lose profits over time and eventually, gain nothing at all. To be a game developer isn't simply just to create game, but to use it effectively to earn money for living and open a new point of view in the future.
