Gameplay Programmer Though all programmers add to the content and experience that a game provides, a gameplay programmer focuses more on a game's strategy, implementation of the game's mechanics and logic, and the "feel" of a game. This is usually not a separate discipline, as what this programmer does usually differs from game to game, and they will inevitably be involved with more specialised areas of the game's development such as graphics or sound. This programmer may implement strategy tables, tweak input code, or adjust other factors that alter the game. However, many of these aspects may be altered by programmers who specialise in these areas (for example, strategy tables may be implemented by AI programmers). A gameplay programmer is a programmer who will be responsible for code that directly touches on the game experience. That is, the programmer will be responsible for constructing the games, rather than engine or larger game systems.
