About the gaming industry
Being only just over four decades old, the videogames industry itself is quite young. This has both advantages and disadvantages. One of the major advantages is that the average age of the personnel employed in the industry is still less than 40. This preponderance of youth brings a certain creative enthusiasm which is sometimes lacking in other industries.
Despite being very young, the videogames industry is already bigger than Box Office Hollywood in terms of gross revenue. It is also growing at over 10 percent every year. This phenomenal growth rate presents great new opportunities for aspiring game designers, programmers, and artists.
Despite this, the videogames industry faces some major challenges. One of these is the constant flux produced by the introduction of new games hardware and software platforms for development. The home console-based games industry (represented by consumer hardware such as Sony PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Xbox One) goes through a major paradigm shift every 4 to 5 years. The industry is currently going through another such upheaval.
The modern PC-based games industry is also always in constant flux. New 3D graphics and CPU technologies get introduced every year. In fact, game development has often been likened to landing man on the moon while still building the spacecraft!
In recent years, a host of new games platforms have also come into the market, presenting even more opportunities for aspiring game developers. These include VR Apple iOS, Google Android and Facebook.
This fluid environment also presents immense challenges for both game developers and publishers. With the constant churn in hardware and software, the videogames industry is now facing a serious shortage of qualified candidates for employment. This resource crunch is keenly felt in the sectors of games programming and art.
“We are facing a serious decline in the quality of graduates looking to enter the industry,”
Chairman, Frontier Developments
“There is a skills shortage in the games industry at present,”
“There will always be a flow of skilled people between countries and this can be positive,”
Rebellion CEO and Creative director
“Working as a game designer is like the mouse on your computer; some days it clicks and some days it drags.”
“There has been a 15% drop in the number of students taking computer science, maths and physics degrees over the past 10 years. This has reduced the amount of skilled programmers coming out of universities.”
“There are plenty of high-level university courses that teach students how to develop games, but there are very few in the UK and indeed the world that deliver anything like the level of technical skills that are needed to innovate with graphics, simulation, low-level performance and engine development techniques. These are the skills needed to push the next generation of entertainment especially at the dawn of the VR and AR industries with their increased graphical requirements.”
Director of Barog Game Labs
“Gaming is such a fast-paced sector and continually benefits from rapidly evolving computer technologies. It needs graduates with the right mix of deep academic knowledge and hands-on experience who understand how to generate new levels of visual realism and effects on cutting-edge hardware platforms and write the rendering engines that will power the next generation of games.”
Professor of Computer Science, University of Leeds
“There is a real shortage of technical talent which is a limiting factor in the growth of the UK games industry.”
COO and founder, Sumo Digital
“A single-player game is really a movie that you create in cooperation with the player, where the lead actor doesn’t have a copy of the script.”
Co-founder Valve Software
“Video Games are bad for you? That’s what they said about Rock ‘N’ Roll.”
Creator, Super Mario
Why gaming in India?
India stands second in digital adoption growth rate and according to the CII report, the Indian gaming industry was valued at USD 543.08 million in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.61%. India had 198 million mobile gamers in 2015. A report by Emerging Trends in India Gaming Industry said that the Indian gaming industry is expected to touch $801 million by 2022 from $543.08 million in 2016, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 6.61%.
Surprisingly there are over 500 games released per day which also states that an average of 20 games per hour is going live. There is a shortage of talent that could not make their way out in the gaming industry. There are people who have studied computer science or mechanical engineering but still couldn’t match the skills required for the field because the quality of education did not really enhance the knowledge which the gaming industry demands.
Job possibilities in this field are very high. Job titles like a lead designer, game designer, scriptwriter, map builder, level editor, 3D modeler programmer, A.I. programmer, sound effects designer, information architect audio, server architect, gameplay programmer, art director, audio engineer and so on. Bangalore itself has 70 companies hiring people for game development.
The number of genres in games is sky-scraping — from action games, sports games to multiplayer games, horror games or real-time strategy games. With the huge growth in the gaming industry and expectation for something new and innovative, every new game brings in the need to be highly unique and innovative in its way. India has wide opportunities for skilled game development professionals.
