To capture the increasing adoption from mobile devices, desktops and consoles, Games are being made more engaging with interactive options powered by the Cloud. Virtual currency, in-app purchases, constant updates and social gaming have opened up new channels of gamification. In addition, the compliance to gaming standards and regulations has become a differentiator as well as an assurance for both the service providers as well as the end users.
With the availability of thousands of games, a single defect can yield negative outcomes for the investments since gamers prefer a flawless gaming experience. The diverse avenues of engagement in Games demand a holistic approach with game testing maps/checklists and actionable reports that support retest/review and release. As games offer greater convergence, the Test scopes need to consolidate concurrency, performance, compatibility, security, functionality, transactions etc.
