Abstract: This report commissionned by the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) disseminates the outcome of the Developer Satisfaction Survey (DSS), which remains a partnership with Western University and TÉLUQ, as well as our new partners M2 Research and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The DSS was open to anyone involved in the video game industry in a professional or academic capacity. IGDA was looking for a systematic way to understand game developers worldwide, including both IGDA members and non-members, knowing developers’ priorities and the most pertinent issues affecting their overall satisfaction. These insights will be leveraged to help prioritize the IGDA’s advocacy efforts and initiatives. In 2004, the IGDA launched its initial Quality of Life survey in an effort to gain a much clearer understanding of the issues that affect life as a game developer – from “crunch time” to compensation issues. In 2009, the IGDA repeated the Quality of Life survey in partnership with researchers at Western University in Ontario, Canada and TÉLUQ in Québec, Canada. The survey once again provided more insights into how the issue was evolving in our industry, and then a few years ago the IGDA conducted a separate diversity survey to help us obtain a clearer perception of developer demographics.
