i’m actually quite interested in these two as they seems to be rather manual.

Do games companies have a specific automation tool to test out games to save time? But even that also seem hard since we may never know what will players do with the game or how they play it. It not a coincidence that speedrunning - basically using the flaws in the game maps’ designs or explots to get to the end game - has become quite popular in recent years. → emergent gameplay is the right word i think?

Im curious to see if Katalon studio could be used to actually automate games? :thinking:

Yes, game companies often utilize specific automation tools to test games and streamline their testing processes, ultimately saving time and effort. These tools are designed to automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks involved in game testing, allowing testers to focus on more complex and creative aspects of game evaluation. Some popular automation tools used in game testing include: Unity Test Tools (I really like it), Unreal Engine Automation Tool, Selenium, TestComplete …

So yeah, I think KS can with easy one. :rofl:

I just saw Selenium and TestComplete which just happened to be Katalon’s competitors :0

Does this mean that Katalon is missing out on a lucrative market? Given the fact that the global video industry is expected to grow to a whopping 268.8 billion U.S. dollars annually in 2025, according to Statista.

Could there be a plugin or integration between Katalon and these game engines? :thinking:
