DESTINY RAIDS – HOW WE DID…

So, in our last blog we referenced the second coming of the Testology games night. Within this piece of web literature, we referenced the nervousness emanating from the prospective Destiny raid that was planned. The raid was attempted twice. The raid was successfully completed twice! And in truly boastful fashion, the 6 gentlemen clicked and [...]

TESTOLOGY GAMES NIGHT: THE SECONDING

Here at Testology, we really love to spend as much time as possible playing games and feigning social interaction. This means, instead of playing Destiny with each other over PSN – which has been the reality of most of our collective existences – we play Destiny in the same room at the Testology bat cave. [...]

As you may or may not know, Testology were the proud recipients of a Develop award a few months ago. From the not so distant, memorable evening we acquired a lovely little trophy, a group hangover, and Andy was down one BMW – he still doesn't have his car back! Now, thanks to the lovely [...]

Gamescom 2014

Last week Testology ventured to the wonderful Cologne to experience Gamescom 2014. Firstly, it must be remembered that this was our first Gamescom experience. We’d heard that the consumers went nuts for the show but nothing could have prepared us for the gaming hysteria of the “entertainment area”. For the record, the hustle, bustle, and [...]

Thom’s Beard

He came from nowhere, far beyond the hills that spilled beyond the world of technology, devices, mathematics, and digital experiences. His world was his beard and his work was the trees. He lumbered from dusk till dawn and repeated the cycle stopping only to wash and oil his precious face beast. He rejoiced in his [...]

The Mesmerist – An evening of Develop revelry

Tuesday evening, which now seems like an eternity ago, saw us host our drinks mixer at the very cool Mesmerist in Brighton. Along with Jagex and Codemasters, we wanted to put on an event that brought like-minded-fun-seekers together in a place where the beer flowed! The bar was eccentrically perfect for the games industry, and [...]

The Testology Culture

It's difficult to pin point and define a culture/environment - so, salivating at the thought of a challenge, we decided to try. The creative industries, generally, have an incredibly unique appreciation of culture and working environments. There's an emphasis on freedom of thought, individuality, and comfortability that makes an 8am weekday alarm something to look [...]

Testology will be in Brighton on Tuesday 8th [...]

MCV 5s – Get in there!

The World Cup was marred with characteristically English underperformance. We came, we saw, we went home again without a win or a hint of glory. When the Testology Forest (don’t ask…) team ventured to Barnet on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, we were determined to outdo the England lads’ results. Granted, it was the MCV 5s [...]

However, there’s a bigger tournament on the horizon that promises drama on a scale the footballing world has never before seen – MCV [...]
