9:55 Game Testing Questions
Over the next two days you will have people test your game, or at least what you have built so far. Some of you are ready today to do testing, some will be in a better position tomorrow or Friday.
Testing works best when you know what you are testing. The UI? The Core Mechanic? The Storyline? …..
On a fresh Google Doc, create 3- 5 questions for your game testers. What do you want feedback on? What do you want to know to make improvements while still in the early stages of your game?
Maybe include one additional question – In this game I wish……
Share your Google Doc of questions so I can print for you this morning. I’ll make copies. I’ll place the copies under your game status on the whiteboard. You can ask your testers for feedback on specific parts of your game you want them to test. By the end of the week you will have feedback that you can use as maintenance for your game. (If you are on a team, work together to gather questions).
When you are complete with your questions, you may continue with your game development this morning.

11:15 CAWD 1 Visits – Game Studio Showcase
We have visitors today from CAWD1. The students will be the incoming class for CAWD2. Your task is simple. Show them your game / what you have been working on for your game (if your a team).
These students have never seen Unity nor do they know anything about C# programming. Give them a 3 minute overview of your project. Don’t sweat it, you are in dev mode. They are interested to learn what you have been making/coding. We’ll rotate every 3 minutes.
For some of you (Jack, Dan A. Owen) this is a great time to get some testing done and gather feedback.
