“When creating art visualizing features for a game, options for mobile devices are developed first. We pay much attention to the game’s performance: graphics content optimization, animations and effects. At the same time, the quality of games should remain high. A key challenge is to find a balance between quality and performance. The trend brings many changes. Games can be simplified in terms of content and effects, but at the same time, technology goes fast. For example, with the increasing availability of 5G technology, new opportunities open up for game developers”, highlights Yulia Aliakseyeva, Game Producer at BGaming.
