What do Game Designers do?
Game Designers are, in general, the creators of the game. Much like directors of movies, their tasks include creating plots, storylines and characters. However, a core game designer is responsible for the conception, gameplay and content of a game and defines all other core rules for what happens in the game. Game designers have an eye on the overall project and communicate content to the rest of the development team. On the other hand, a Level Designer creates levels, environments and other important visual assets for the game. Designers commonly adjust their vision of the game during the development period in response to any difficulties. This is often referred to as game balancing.
