Topics I've Started


27 May 2014 - 03:56 PM

I am going for a job interview next week tuesday for a self employed contract role. From the e-mail the interview will be two hours long and consist of a practical assessment. I've been to a interview at a games testing lab last year.  I had to do a four hours assessment day where I played a game and had to find bugs. Another exercise was to see if you can connect a console. From what I'm thinking the interview will be me playing a game and seeing if I spot any significant bugs and to assess my knowledge of console and my communication skills. Has anyone had a job interview with Testology?  

Game Idea for a 2d platform game

08 February 2014 - 12:33 PM

I am thinking of my a small 2d platform game using stencyl or game maker. I am aiming to make it within 3-4 days. Just trying to make a small challenge. Probably put it unto the web or a flash game site. 


The story within the game would be a evil cat scientist/ evil guy with a cat who aims to make the world back into the egyptian times so that cats can become man's best friend once again. 


The dog the main player in the game aims to stop the cat from this aim, but has to rescue his girlfriend from them.


Would have around 3-4 levels consisting of worlds like city map, forest, beach, etc. At the end of each level, you face the evil cats menions.


The dog would be anthropomorphic. Similar to Sonic. Like a Hip hop dog. Haven't thought much in depth about the gameplay mechanics. Jump mechanic would be the basic one. Maybe roll into a ball and attack enemies. Can punch them and can use his ears to glide in the air for a while. 


Main goals within levels is from point a to b avoiding obstacles like spikes, falling blocks, scrolling background in some of the levels. 


Enemies can be killed by jumping on their head. Different types of enemies: ground animals, flying animals, robot

How to find video games internships within the UK.

02 February 2014 - 11:54 AM

I have seen a few companies advertise internships positions, for example Lionhead, etc, but I have not notice many intern positionsaround the UK. I know companies would have vacancies but not advertise them or they mainly looking for experienced staff rather than someone who would only stay there for a few months. I would be looking for a games design intern or support intern. I had a support intern interview last year with marmalade. I think the best way to look for them would be to get to know one or two people in a particular company I would like to work for.
