How Artificial intelligence is Transforming the Gaming Industry

First of all, the main question is: What is Artificial Intelligence in the gaming world? Artificial intelligence has been in the gaming industry since the beginning of video games. But the technology was so different now from then.

Artificial intelligence works with the NPCs (non-playable characters), and is used to determine the behavior of the non-playable characters by generating the response or actions from the NPCs. Artificial intelligence mainly works on interaction, so it does not include the firing, slashing, or killing an enemy.

What are NPC AIs?

A Non-Playable Character is like the protagonists friend or family member, or it can be anybody in the game. In most games today, the NPC AIs dont really use machine learning technology, because they dont have to. If there are 4 dialogue options to choose from and 1 NPC response to each option, this can be achieved with traditional computer programming. There is no need for machine learning here.

In terms of traditional NPCs, we use the term AI because these characters are supposed to be made in a way that they appear real and alive.

The main work of an NPC is to help the player to advance in the storyline or to say something about the tasks of the game or different places the player has to go or how to defeat a certain enemy. They are controlled by artificial intelligence, as with the help of artificial intelligence an NPC adapts the behavior of the player and generates human-like responses which help in the progression of the mission or storyline.

For example, RDR2 (Red Dead Redemption 2) is one of the great games which has shown us the true power of artificial intelligence. The whole storyline has beautifully shown us the importance of NPCs in a game and how they adapt from the players different decisions and the storyline changes from those decisions. In short words, artificial intelligence determines the players behaviors and emulates the behavior of the NPCs to make the storyline meaningful.

Now on to the main question.

7 Different Types of Game Testing Techniques

7 Different Types of Game Testing Techniques

The global gaming industry is expected to reach more than $300 billion by 2025 with the growth of revolutionary offerings, like cloud gaming and mobile gaming, according to a new report from GlobalData. With the constant growth and expansion of the gaming industry worldwide, top leaders in this industry like AltSpaceVR and BigScreenVR, are accelerating a virtual future probably faster than many wait for. However, it is vital for the gaming companies to not only focus on future trends but also to identify the users needs. Delivering an end gaming product with errors and bugs will bring about criticism from the end-users, which in turn can lead to a huge reduction in unit sales.

GlobalData Thematic Research

Without knowing who their players are, and whether the gaming application is ready for use or not, even the thriving game manufacturers wont be able to sustain. Game testing is one of the crucial steps that help to ensure optimal performance and quality in the end product. Such intellectual services give the development process a crucial eye to focus on constant searches like errors, completeness, bugs, bottlenecks, inconsistencies, coherence and, etc. However, testing this kind of software/ hardware will need new techniques of testing, which will initiate new methodologies being pioneered by some companies like KiwiQA, Testbytes, TestMatick, etc. are moving their business in this new area.

Major Risks in Game Testing

  • If the game doesnt create a compelling experience for the niche audience
  • If the fun factor missing in the games
  • The game doesnt include a player-centric design
  • If the Game is not unique, fast-paced or competitive
  • The gaming app fails because of broken features, poor video, technical issues, bad music sound, critical bugs, etc.
  • The game should have easy to use features and visual design and the game-play

7 Most Popular Game Testing Techniques

The core objective of game testing, no matter what technique is being used, is to discover and document any errors in the software. These errors are commonly called bugs. The game testing method aims to detect the bugs and retain documentation of the software products. It can be performed in six distinct ways that include:

**1. Functionality Testing **

This type of testing is done to confirm whether the end product works following the specifications. Functionality QA testers mainly hunt for the generic problems within the game or its graphics & user interface, such as game asset integrity, stability issues, audio-visual issues, and game mechanic issues. Few things that proficient game testers consider while testing the interactive applications comprise performance issues like freezing, crashing, and progression blockages. User interface (UI) tests, on the flip side, make sure user-friendliness of the game. UI testing crucially aims at highlighting two significant things, both the content types and the graphical elements. Besides, localization tests of the game should also be covered.

2. Combinatorial Testing

By making use of this method, you can effortlessly test the game rapidly in its earliest stages. Initially, the initial step is to discover how much testing your game necessitates. For this reason, you can use this particular type of testing to determine whether the game satisfies the definite requirements or functions bug-free. Besides, it also analyzes and scrutinizes all the outputs and inputs of the game so you can get a clear image concerning distinct conceivable combinations and outcomes. It is mostly used for commercial software testing to generate test cases. The execution of combinatorial testing techniques in video game testing improves the effectiveness of test execution, quality, phase containment, and cost.

3. Ad Hoc Testing

Ad hoc testing often referred as general testing is a less structured way of testing and it is randomly done on any section of the gaming application. Specifically, there are two distinct types of ad hoc testing. This kind of testing works on the technique called error guessing and requires no documentation or process or planning to be followed. Since Ad hoc testing aims at detecting defects or errors through a random approach, with zero documentation, errors wont be mapped to test cases. There are three different types of Adhoc testing; Pair testing, Buddy testing, and Monkey testing. The benefit of this type of testing is to ensure the completeness of testing and detect hidden errors or bugs than planned testing.

4. Compatibility Testing

Compatibility testing aims to detect any defects in the functionality and shows if the final product meets the essential requirements of the software, hardware, and graphics. Its better to keep the game users happy after all. Conducting this type of test helps to validate whether the games UI (user interface) is optimized for varied screen sizes of different handsets. This is done for both mobile and PC games. For instance, in mobile games, this would be used for testing whether the game will functions properly on the various sets of Android devices. This technique can evaluate the compatibility of your game on different gaming platforms.
