It is common to consider videogames as something that is only for children and is not worth the adults’ attention. But despite all the stereotypes, videogame business has always attracted developers by its potential, profitability and popularity. After all, video games are popular among children, teenagers and adults as well. 

Videogame development is rather demanding and long-lasting process, which requires much inspiration and financing, but only due to hard work an exciting and entertaining product with an incredible gameplay and amazing graphics can be created.
