Our gaming software testing expertise

Craft engaging games with comprehensive QA support tailored to industry specifics.

Compatibility testing

We ensure correct operation of games for consoles, personal computers, mobile devices, or web browsers, accounting for different hardware and software configurations. We also keep minimum and recommended game requirements for OS, CPU, RAM, and GPU while selecting devices for compatibility testing.

Localization testing

We help games appeal to a global audience by reviewing localized scripts, voice-overs, subtitles, and other text elements for any issues. We also verify local nuances, such as symbols, currencies, date and time formatting.

Performance testing

We fulfill both server- and client-side performance testing and focus on metrics such as CPU and memory utilization, latency, response time, and concurrent user sessions. We help to eliminate game freezes and ensure the game is fast, stable, and can handle sudden load increases.

Functional testing

We apply smoke, exploratory, acceptance, and other functional testing types to validate that games run correctly and features operate under set specifications. During testing, we check the entire gaming flow, from registration to in-game purchases, and identify functionality, graphics, and game integrity issues.

Installation testing

We detect defects in the installation process of diverse games, verifying that players have a smooth first interaction with the software, which is vital for a positive player experience.

Compliance testing

We help game developers meet marketplace guidelines and regulatory standards, including PEGI, ESRB, and FTC, ensuring smooth game submissions and avoiding legal complications.

Regression testing

We confirm that any code changes such as patches for fixing problems, major updates for adding new features, or separately installed components haven’t caused software defects or system crashes.

Usability testing

We assess the graphical interface, confirm that game logic is intuitive and simple, and check the software is simple to master, thus enhancing player retention from the first use.

Test automation

We choose the scope for automation, introduce automated QA workflows, integrate them into CI/CD pipelines, and help maintain current or a newly set up test automation solution. We reduce testing cycle time, enlarge test coverage, and optimize operational expenditure.

Cybersecurity testing

We use penetration testing and static code analysis, evaluate software security, and offer detailed improvement recommendations to fortify games against potential threats, identify vulnerabilities, and protect players’ financial and personal data.

Challenges forcing game developers choose independent QA

Inability to properly test multiplayer functionality

Limited internal resources can hinder the effective testing of game mechanics with large player counts. Leveraging external support helps verify the entire game functionality in the multiplayer mode, check server ability to withstand high loads, confirm correct software operation over local area networks or the Internet.

Issues in payment processes

Monetization hiccups due to payment issues can lead to lost profits and player drop-offs. Detailed testing of payment gateways and checking all the payment methods available in the game is vital for streamlining application monetization.

Poor QA processes

A lack of software testing processes leads to unmet quality gates, deadline delays, or budget overruns. Independent QA providers can advance testing methodologies and pinpoint process enhancements to prevent overspending and production-phase software issues.

Low cost-efficiency

In-house QA teams can be costly, especially with fluctuating workloads. Independent QA services offer economical solutions, allowing better allocation of QA engineers.

Integration bottlenecks

Faulty interactions between games or betting products and third-party systems can disrupt data flow and introduce bugs. Integration testing expertise is key to resolving such challenges.

Slow software delivery

Failure to adopt test automation and gather timely user feedback can extend testing cycles and overshoot budgets. External QA automation experts can streamline QA processes and maintain existing test automation solutions.

Scalability concerns

Failure to quickly scale testing processes to deliver top-tier operation during a massive influx of users can cause unplanned software downtimes. Proficient QA vendors can swiftly assign specialists to prepare gaming products for peak loads.
