In my perception to be a game designer you need to have Logical skills and creativity that’s all, i am not a coder or not until i found a third party tool which helps me to make simple games, though high level coding is essential. Lots of developers think they had made a game design and put miles of effort, so people should like it, it ain’t easy that way. Game designing needs more than a coding skill it needs to read gamers mind and play with them. I don’t know how many of you will agree with his but that’s just my perception.
Wish you all have a great day, and keep bringing awesome games to try or play. :)
