Games are liked by the people of all the ages. That is why game developers try to introduce some new game after some time to seek the attention of game players. Game development is an art, and a game gets ready after passing some essential stages. Here we will discuss how a game is developed and what is the procedure.
Pre-production and prototype: This is the fun part of game development. Game developers like this stage the most, and they spend most of their time at this stage. In this stage, developers utilize their rough ideas or imaginations, and they try to look at the things how they will happen. The script is prepared. Anything can be tried at this stage. If the things or ideas work, developers can continue their work, and if the idea goes wrong, then they can stop their work, and a new idea can be put into practice. Prototyping is the key element of this stage. But it can take months, and your efforts may fail if the things do not seem to work in prototyping.
Production: If a game passes the prototype phase, then there is a need for the actual production of the game, and at this stage, there is a need for technical analysis. This is a critical stage where developers need to see things thoroughly. How the game will be played, how the streaming will happen, what would be the framing structure of the game, how the things will smoothly work etc. This is a very important stage, and the developer pays great attention to this stage. This is also called the development stage because sounds, effects, characters, scripting all the things are put into the practice here. Quality assurance is also checked here that involves two points’ correctness and entertainment.
Post-production: This is the last stage of game development, but it is also very important. Once the game is fully prepared and it is released on some forum, then there is a need for maintenance. It involves updates and bug fixation. At this stage, developing team works hard to maintain the quality, and they assure all the time best gaming experience for the game players. They try to make the game as good as possible. If a game goes well, it brings good sale for its developers.
So these are the common game development stages that are practiced by the developers. These stages prove very handy for the right game development.
