The game tester role may sound like it is all fun and games. Yet, it actually involves serious work that has something to do with getting a problem fixed before a game goes public to avoid bad reviews and significant losses. Here are some of the primary responsibilities expected of the role.
- Go through a game in its entirety to identify potential issues that can affect player experience. Areas include functionality, performance, usability, compatibility, and content.
- Provide qualitative feedback to the development team.
- Ensure that all features are implemented according to design.
- Checklist and regression testing
- Documenting and reporting defects.
As a game tester, you are expected to have a strong passion for games and gaming experience (though not necessarily on a professional level). You should also at least have an associates degree, but a Bachelor’s degree is definitely a big plus.
Excellent attention to detail, A+ hand-eye coordination, strong oral and written communication skills, ability to work with a team, and ability to adapt to different testing requirements and priorities are key skills that will help you do well in this role. Additionally, you should have a good work ethic and a lot of discipline and patience, as testing can get monotonous and frustrating.
