Social media platforms serve as the perfect launch pads for “indie games”. Hence, scope for indie game development and game developers has been on the constant rise.
  • AI Program Development: As Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a key component in game development, graduates would get to dabble in Artificial Intelligence to ensure that the gameplay confirms to world-class standards. Hence, development of Artificial Intelligence is also one major area that requires significant expertise from both software developers as well as game developers – working in tandem.

Game Testing: One can become a Game tester as they are also in optimal demand now. The overall quality control and analysis of the game depends on testers. This has a direct impact on the overall quality of the game (PC/Mobile) after game development is completed.
