comment Game companies - Involvement of programmers in the design process
@Richard, I would say the only distinction between "bedroom coder" and "designer who started as professional coder" is when they first started making games. A "designer that can code" today might still get their first game industry job as a coder, not a designer, because there are more entry-level coding jobs out there. FWIW, this was my career path (programmer -> game programmer -> game designer) and I know a few others who went this path as well.
