Does game design pay well?
Whether you’re asking ‘How much money does a game designer make an hour?’ or ‘How much money does a game designer make a month?’, we’ve got the answer. We’ll also take a look at how game designers get paid and how many hours you work as a game designer. Taking the average game designer salary of between £27,000 and £33,000 as a starting point (depending on location), it can reasonably be said that – on average – a game designer will make between £2,250 and £2,750 a month before tax and deductions. Do bear in mind that your salary is likely to be lower than at the beginning of your career. If you want to charge on a daily or hourly rate (if you’re coming in at the end of a project, for example) you may be able to charge more – the UK median daily rate for a game designer in December 2019 was £475. Working hours tend to hover around the 35-hour per week mark, although it is an industry which often requires putting in extra hours as deadlines approach.
What is the difference between a game designer and a game developer?
There’s a definite symbiosis between the two roles – it would take skilled professionals in both roles to make a game a hit. But they are unique roles, each requiring a specific mindset. Generally speaking a game designer is the creative thinker who comes up with the overall design of a game. A video game developer, on the other hand, is the person who converts the ideas and objectives of the game designer into the game itself. To put it simply: the developer turns the vision of the designer into reality.
