This week Sam and Ally discuss the many stages of testing throughout the course of game development. QA testers before the game ever gets into the hands of players. This day and age of Early Access for numerous titles on Steam where people pay to essentially test an unfinished product. Alpha and Beta testing to a lucky few. Open Betas often serve as much-needed stress testing, and the ever-present Public Test Realm; all play important roles in delivering a stable, fun experience once content hits the live servers.
