Game Designing is what one can call a new age career. The entertainment business may be centuries old, but the gaming industry has been making it's significance felt only for a little less than three decades. And when we talk about India alone, the figure drops down to only a decade or so! India's gaming industry has only taken a start and is limited to making arcade-ish games for mobile phones and online games for PC's. The other large chunk of games falls into the educational category. Owing to this, career prospects for game designers is rather limited at present in India, but practically endless in the future.

The gaming industry employs expertise from many fields as many games are simulations or emulations of real world entities. Racing and casino games are good examples. Games like video poker have very few things which can distinguish them from real world machines. Cars featured in racing games try to use believable physics systems to give users a goos sense of speed. Similarly, for every other aspect of a game including programming and the artwork, specialists are not required. Thus getting this industry not only demands some specialization, but general understanding of other aspects too.

There aren't too many reputed institutes in India offering courses in game designing. The National Institute of Design offers a two and a half year course in Game Design. People who have pursued B.E/ B.Tech/ B.Des/ B.Arch/ B.Int.Des/ BFA/BVC/ B.Litt/ Graduation in Commn. Media, Film& TV, Mass Media or any Equivalent degree can apply for the course. If you have done any other course, having a year's experience in the relevant field still makes you eligible.

The international Institute of Gaming and Animation (IIGA) provides platform specific training for game development ranging from mobile phones and PC's to gaming consoles. It also provides training in 3D modelling softwares like 3DS Max and MAYA. Apart from these, Colorchips Animation Training Centre (Hyderabad), Digital Academy Film School (Mumbai) and ICAT (Image College of Arts, Animation & Technology), Chennai offer training in game development. The ICAT  offers full time under graduate as well as post graduate programs in game development. The UG course lasts for 3 years while PG is just one year long. Digital Academy Film School offers courses in 3D animation as well as Sound recording and engineering.

Since game designing has many aspects involved, from the concept to the artwork and visuals, game designing is serious business. Apart from being skilled in the relevant field, aspirants are also required to have a somewhat creative bent of mind. Once pursued, it can be as enjoyable as it is rewarding!
