the platform for playtesting
Dashcam can help.
Dashcam can make playtesting smoother at any stage. You might even have fun. After all, that’s what games are for.
Improved playtesting coverage
Review clips of people actually using the game as intended. Lure out bugs and other issues that could have been overlooked in traditional playtesting methods.
No one likes reproducing and diagnosing issues, because it takes up time you could otherwise use to build characters and design worlds. Dashcam makes it easy. Save time and bump up your efficiency. You have more exciting things to do.
Problems are best solved together, and Dashcam makes sharing clips easy. Have a question? Ask your team. Send a replay or ask for one.
Games are anything but boring. Why should playtesting be? Increase participation with the visually interactive nature of replays, and find more of those pesky bugs.
Playtesting is to video games what dogfooding is to other products. It’s a chance for people to thoroughly test a game at various points during development to uncover any bugs, issues, or design flaws prior to sending it out to the public. It’s also a great way to get feedback on what works and what doesn’t.
Atari started playtesting in 1976, and it has become common practice across gaming companies ever since. By the time your game gets into the hands of your fans, it should be the best it can be, and playtesting ensures that it is.
Why is it helpful?
You can use playtesting in the beginning, further along, or just before release. Regardless of when you engage your testers, you’re sure to encounter some snags that need to be ironed out:
Find bugs or glitches before your fans do.
Fix gameplay flaws like holes in the story so users won’t be thrown out of the world you’ve painstakingly built for them.
Identify areas that need improvement or attention-grabbing elements to infuse fun. Boredom has no place in gameplay.
Games are expensive to make, and the price is still climbing. Add up these saves through playtesting, and you just might prevent your game from becoming a flop. Present players with a glitch-free, entertaining, well-thought-out game to play, and you may gain lifelong followers.
