Correctly identifying what to test is an important part of any test strategy, regardless of how you you plan to run your tests. This workshop explains the details of how we create test conditions for a sample of common game features and components, with a focus on what makes game features so unique.

We’ll be stepping through a few areas unique to games, identifying common bug trends in those areas and the sources of information we might use to build tests from. We’ll also look at unique attributes of each area, from bugs to fix flows.
