QA via the Masses: Tapping into Player Enthusiasm to Improve QA

David Lease  |  CTO, 5th Planet Games

Location: Room 2004, West Hall

Format: Session
Track: QA Summit
Vault Recording: Video


Usually, if your player base is pointing out flaws in your game, it means you haven't done your job in QA'ing it properly. But when your player base is actually part of your QA team, it flips traditional thinking on its head. By inviting users to seek out flaws and involving them in the QA process, it is possible to actually drive deeper player engagement and loyalty while streamlining your company's QA process. 5th Planet Games' David Lease explains how his company taps into player enthusiasm to solicit feedback and improve QA.

Takeaway

The audience will walk away from this session with several ideas for how they can tap into their user base and community to help with not only QA, but also product design and development.
