Okay we've all heard the best way to break into the games industry is through game testing. They are of major demand from basically all developers, and if you do well in the job, your colleges (the actual developers) may ask for your opinions like "Do you think level X is too difficult for the targetted audience?" and you may become a regular source of developers getting opinions from, leading to you getting promoted to lets say level designer/editter.
So I am on a journey to become a game tester, and I will take you through the rough and the smooth for you to see how it is and whether it is worth it. If you are thinking of getting into the games industry, think of me like a scapegoat.
Anyway, so far on my journey, I have applied for many closed beta mmos for experience, I've researched A LOT!!! and I have a good idea of what being a game tester involves. I am going to be testing myself if I get into the Closed Beta of Outsparks new game Project Powder (or ProPow) to become the person to find and isolate as many bugs and glitches as possible so I know that I am ready for the job.
There is only one thing standing in the way of me actually applying for a full time QA Game Tester job. College. So instead I will be looking for local part-time jobs.
Oh and a note: Never sign up to any website like "Become a game tester" because it is a big scam. Never pay for the courses they offer.
Thank you and goodnight xxx
