Unveiling the Hottest Topics from GDC 2024.

Stepping into the electrifying ambiance of GDC 2024, with its colossal gaming presence and bustling crowds, the T-Plan team donned our signature orange and black ‘on brand’ coats and dove headfirst into the action. Over the course of the event, we covered an impressive 180,000 steps, equivalent to 75 miles, engaging with game developers, testing houses, and QA specialists. Here’s a glimpse into the burning questions and topics that dominated discussions in the testing realm. 

Key Topics Discussed:

  • Elevated Consumer Expectations: With the gaming landscape evolving rapidly, consumers’ demand for seamless gameplay experiences has skyrocketed. What was once dismissed as a mere ‘glitch’ is now scrutinised more closely, underscoring the need for impeccable quality standards. 
  • Pressing Demands on QA Test Houses: QA test houses face mounting pressure to expedite testing processes and sign off on games swiftly, all within increasingly tighter budgets. 
  • AI and testing: The buzz around AI and its impact on testing was palpable, with discussions centering on how Game Test Automation accelerates the creation, execution, and maintenance of test scripts. Our Visual UI Testing tool proved to be a perfect fit for this dialogue, as it adeptly identifies patterns in visual test data, streamlining the testing process. 
  • Localisation: Localisation emerged as a prominent theme, with companies keen on globally delivering accurate and seamless game portals in multiple languages. Our discussions underscored the importance of catering to diverse linguistic and cultural preferences to enhance user experiences worldwide. 
  • Mobile game testing: The significance of testing across various devices, platforms, and operating systems remained paramount, evidenced by the 70% of inquiries directed towards our product specifically focusing on mobile devices. The need for comprehensive mobile game testing persists, highlighting the ongoing importance of ensuring optimal performance and usability across all mobile platforms.
