Guild for Developers – The first gathering

Guildford is home & office to some of the best Games Industry talent in the UK and that’s no secret. Stuart Heritage of The Guardian recently described our self-effacing pseudo-city as the ‘centre of the known gaming world’ and we believe that statement to be as deserved as it is grandiose. Testology might be based [...]

Friday night at a Testology party. There were drinks of considerable strangeness and drinks all-too familiar, indefinable types of food being lined up for quick consumption… cheeses, meats, chicken skewers, churros with melted chocolate, food with no names, food with unpronounceable names, food, food, and food, more drinks, laughter, conversation about all things – while [...]

The Knack When we speak to people about testers, or getting into testing, or the types of skillset needed to excel in a functional testing role or, more specifically, the best approaches to unstructured/destructive testing (breaking those applications within an inch of their digital life!) we always refer to “the knack” - that inherently prodigious [...]

Device testing brings with it an added consideration. Scrap that, let’s run with the plural – “considerations”. There’s an everyday function to a mobile handset or tablet that incorporates an inundated number of features, content, applications, and functionality that the average user utilizes in an unintentionally collective way. It’s impossible to consider a device purely [...]

Games of Game Connection with Sread

Now that we’ve made the painful transition from super-hot sunshine to cloud-shielded solar eclipses, we thought it only right to share some of the best games we discovered while we were in San Francisco. GDC turns San Francisco into a veritable hotbed of Games Industry talent from all over the world, it really has to [...]

Testology went to San Francisco!

We’re back! Well, actually we got back a week ago... That’s the only problem with meeting so many people in just a week at GDC, follow-up mails when you get back always take way longer than expected. Now that we’ve (mostly) caught up with ourselves, we thought it only right to round up our experiences [...]

PG Connects London

The show Pocket Gamer Connects. For a show that’s only a year old, it’s a good one. We were there last year for the first iteration and after attending this year, I'm sure it’s a show to keep firmly in the calendar. Being amongst the first conferences of 2015, PGC took on the weighty task [...]

Andy Robson through the years…

We now live in an era where everything is immortalised online. There’s no escape from the permanence of a video or picture from yesteryear. We’ve been able to track down some wonderful examples of the past reemerging online many years later. The content is super interesting and worth a read. The hair is voluminous. Check [...]

Apple – Best of 2014

The end of any year brings with it the potential for reflection. Typically, this reflection can be intrinsic or personal to oneself.

Apple recently released their “Best [...]
