Game Tester / QA Tester The job of a game tester is not as easy as it sounds. Playing games is the primary function, but this person is also responsible for writing detailed reports of the initial appearance of a bug, areas of gameplay and engine function that are affected, and actions taken to re-create the glitch. Game testers keep detailed logs of test cases, monitor active issues, and maintain the reporting database. Game testing is conducted within the game development studio by regular or temporary employees, not at home. The main function of a game tester is to actively seek to crash the engine. Individuals in this position may be divided into teams to group-test a multiplayer game, or work independently to carefully consider every possible variation of play in a single level.
