Programmers create codes which make the game concept run.

Narrative Designer’s work includes defining the “story experience” a player has during the game, thereby enhancing the immersive quality of gaming.

Game Designer is in charge of visualizing the game concept with which the overall game is then made with the help of other team members such as developers, programmers, animators, producers and other.
