Train2Game news: QA Testing “crucial” says Brawl Busters developer Rock Hippo

Train2Game students on the QA Testing course will be performing a crucial task during game development. That’s according to Brawl Busters developer Rock Hippo Productions who spoke to The Train2Game Blog in a soon to be published interview.

“QA is absolutely crucial to the development process. Something may seem like a good idea on paper, but we’ll never know for sure until we test it out.” Rock Hippo Productions Marketing Manager Flavio Caracas told The Train2Game Blog in an interview about their free-to-play combat title Brawl Busters.

Caracas added that beta testing is also a huge part of the game development process, and a helpful team of beta testers can provide great help to a studio.

“Beta testing allows us to involve our community in game balance decisions and with any bugs overlooked during QA.” He said.

“We’ve been very lucky so far with our community as they have been extremely helpful to us and new players during the open beta phase and our official release. We expect that to continue into 2012 and plan to involve them even more as the game progresses.” Caracas added.

Brawl Busters is a free-to-play multiplayer action combat title, which can be downloaded right here.

The full Train2Game Blog interview with Brawl Busters developer Rock Hippo Productions will be published in the near future.
