What does a game tester do?
A video game tester is mainly responsible for playing all levels of a video game throughout its prototyping, development, or soft launch processes to find bugs, glitches and other errors with the overall UX. There are two types of testing in video games: QA (quality assurance) testing and playtesting. QA testers focus on technical issues, while playtesters focus on gameplay and UX.
Almost all major game studios want game testers to be physically present in the office. However, although rare, some large or small game studios may create a remote game tester position. Here are the postings recently opened by studios looking to hire remote game testers.
