Testing and Quality assurance often has the potential to eat sizable chunks of game production budgets. Keeping aside the budget constraints, external game testing is also a critical activity for game studios, who often want an expert outside opinion on the stability and performance of the application that is being developed.
ChaYoWo’s games testing services can help you dramatically reduce the time and resources spent on testing and quality assurance. Aside from the standard quality assurance tests, we undertake testing of the functionality, compatibility and behavioural aspects of the application.
Game testing services: In Detail
- Standard quality testing - Our testers patiently go through all the lines of code identifying and fixing bugs that might have the potential to hamper the performance of the application.
- Game functionality testing: In order for a game to be a true success it should easily be playable. Here we believe in attention to detail and check for issues relating to user controls, scoring & statistics of players, audio, video, graphics, animation frame rates, single & multi player options (if any) and more depending on the complexity of the game.
- Compatibility testing - Compatibility issues can have serious impact on the performance of the application. Our technicians test the compatibility of the game application developed across the wide variety of platforms (operating systems/ browsers etc) and hardwares it is intended for. We also provide mobile porting tests to ensure smooth transition of features and all functionality elements while porting games to hand held and IPhone platforms.
- Game behavioural testing: We strive to ensure that users really enjoy their experience when playing a particular game. We perform quality control tests using game behavioural experts to assess human excitement, stress, emotional content, difficulty levels and much more.
For all the in-house game development projects at ChaYoWo, quality assurance process begins during the game development stage. Here we focus on creating effective test plans that focus on sound testing methodologies; and clearly communicating the test results internally between the various development teams and externally to the client. ChaYoWo also provides extensive game testing solutions for third party game developers, for applications already developed and in various stages of development. All our testing and quality assurance services are carried out from our global development centre in Kochi, India. We have dedicated quality assurance teams for in-house projects and a separate team for external projects.
