Computer Games Careers Computer games companies require fluent Java and C++ programmers, 3D and digital graphic designers, sound and credits screen designers, technical writers, translators and customer support staff. 90% of those recruited are graduates. Games are now designed by teams just like films (usually after commissioning from a publisher: companies usually have no direct links to consumers/retail outlets).

On-line gaming is getting more and more important. There are about 30,000 people employed in the UK games industry working for games developers, publishers and retailers.
