Beta

By the end of Alpha, the development team should have very clear idea of the game they’re creating. The development team has, for the most part, stopped creating new code and new artwork, and will now shift their focus to perfecting what they’ve already created. It’s time to identify and fix the remaining bugs.

Although the term “Beta testing” frequently refers to any outside testing, it is only at the early stages of the Beta phase that final gameplay testing should take place with people outside the design team. The majority of testing done by outside Beta testers during true Beta is bug reporting and load testing. Gameplay feedback and suggestions should continue to be recorded for possible post-release implementation in a patch or sequel.
