It’s no longer your Mother’s Game testing. Having a few people sit around and “play” your game to look at graphics and sound pass for game testing stopped a dozen years ago.

Today’s game testing has evolved into complex systems with cross platform, multi-user, performance and scalability, fully automated test projects. What used to be “fun” and lightweight is now serious, high value, very technical and skilled work.

In this webinar, a long time games-world tech expert Stephen Copp describes the new reality of game testing, the skills involved and where game testing is going.
