Get Paid To Test Video Games!
Aside from the independent video game website that I was part of at the turn of the century, my professional entry into the game industry was in the summer of 2006 when I started testing for a large publisher. From there I moved on to a number of different companies and been witness to many different work methods and office environments. Overall, testing is exactly the way that most industry insiders describe it, but I feel like too many of them frame their description as a list of complaints rather than just letting the description stand on it’s own. Many people that have a testing background do indeed become quite jaded with it and forget how excited they initially were when they landed the job. In an attempt to be somewhat less negative than others I am writing about my experience in game testing.
