The games sector is a dynamic, growing and rewarding sector. The UK’s games industries as a whole are worth over £4 billion per year to the UK economy. Working in games development might involve researching audiences and generating new ideas for programmes and products; being involved in the production of media products, for example recording sound, filming and creating assets; working in post-production editing digital footage or creating animated sequences. Job roles can also involve testing and debugging new games. These creative industries are linked by the need to inform, entertain and engage audiences.
