This question already has an answer here:
- What is a “Gameplay Programmer”? 3 answers
Game development has lots of fronts... gameplay, physics, graphics, etc. and whenever I look up the answer for this question it's always something vague like: "extended knowledge of c++, c# or whatever".
But what exactly does that mean? Does the gameplay programmers know lots of openGL, directX? maybe lots of vectors, matrices? Do they need to know some network programming?
So what kind of coding and other tasks do gameplay programmers do?
