Improving Video Game Software Quality

Find and Fix Bugs Before They Ruin Your Game & Your Reputation

Try Collaborator

“In cases where we see a spike in defects from an experienced developer, SmartBear Collaborator helps us analyze whether we might be rushing development, or perhaps the requirements are nebulous so that the developer is struggling to fulfill them. The issue might also be due to two groups that may not have a good feel for each other’s style and syntax. With Collaborator, we can more easily identify the specific cause.”

Driving Your Software Development with Collaborative Peer Reviews

Nothing ruins a gaming experience like buggy software. If your game launches with glitches, some of your customers might not come back. They're already off to play the next game. Keeping your software quality impeccable can be the difference between owning a flop or a home run.

With Collaborator, your development team is empowered to conduct peer code and document reviews early and often, ensuring premier quality throughout the entire application lifecycle. Cross-functional teams can remotely and collaboratively improve on deliverables all in one place. Whether you are a product manager writing and reviewing requirements or a software architect building the latest feature, Collaborator helps you and your team stay on the same page.

Create Custom Templates to Match the Workflow that Fits Your Team Best

In Collaborator, you can build custom review templates to ensure that each type of peer review meets your specific compliance needs. Formalize reviews by setting rules for each template that work in the background and establish required criteria that must be met prior to submission.

Easily Archive Code and Document Reviews to Track Changes Over Time

If you need to know why a specific change in code was made years ago, are you out of luck? Collaborator offers a content archiving capability that allows you maintain data continuity and manage server space. Just save reviews to a zip file and you can easily go back years by simply opening a folder. Whether you are looking to conduct internal audits or just get visibiliity into the reasoning behind a block of source code, our Save to Zip feature makes that query much easier.
