Is Your Game GDC Compliant?Make it or break it at Game Developers Conference 2003 We bet you are busting your butt these days to complete the final levels of your game demo for the Game Developers Conference, right? Busy adding those finishing touches, fixing those bastard coding bugs, and eliminating those evil graphics glitches? Most likely, you will spend day and night the next couple of weeks prior to the show getting that demo ready to present to potential publishers, who is going to finance your Ferrari, your mortgage and your trip to US, right? Have you remembered everything . including Quality Assurance? We bet you forgot! And no guys, it doesnt count that your wife and children have seen your game, and nor does it help that all your friends have spent an evening or two commenting on the initial impression! United Coders offers a unique and very affordable quality assurance. Not only do we track down those nasty bugs that needs to be eliminated, we also evaluate the overall product: How does the graphics compare to similar products on the market? Is the audio synchronised correctly? Is the game too hard, too easy or plain boring? How about the controls and your documentation (you forgot that too, didnt you!), and how does your game perform when it comes to pure entertainment and the all-important gameplay? All members of the Q/A team at United Coders are former game Producers or have a journalist background in gaming magazines. They will constantly play you game (24/7 on shift), trying out every possible and impossible solution to completing the levels, defeating the baddies etc. Our team will also look at the graphics, audio, loading time, visual sequences, voicing and compare the quality and performance with similar products currently on the market. And of course, the all-important gameplay will be evaluated to discover just how addictive your game is. A written report is delivered immediately after the test, and we are geared to test any kind of game or product regardless of platform. Spending that little extra on Q/A at United Coders can make (instead of break) your game at GDC ensuring you get that publisher contract!
