Work at Bungie! Testers!

We start a long, lingering look at job positions and careers at video game companies like Bungie. Today, we start with Test, one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs in the business. It's not as easy at sounds, as you'll read here.

  • Game testing can be quite interesting. I have done it, not as a job, but voluntarily for a much smaller game team. Someone mentioned earlier that it can get quite boring. This is true, due to the fact that you are not just playing the game to have fun: you are trying to do absolutely everything that can possibly be done in the game in order to find bugs or problems with the game. For instance, you might try dual-wielding a plasma rifle in the right hand and a pistol in the left on Beaver Creek, and then a pistol in the right hand and a plasma rifle in the left on Beaver Creek, and then an SMG in the right hand and a pistol in the left on Beaver Creek, etc. It can get quite boring because you have to try literally everything, including dying in bizarre places, dying in bizarre ways, trying to fly banshees off maps, and really anything you can think of and more to find problems with the game. However, it has its rewards too. Firstly, you get to playtest new stuff and see how it works, which can be cool. Plus, I made playtesting sound a bit boring, but a lot of it is fun. Since I never did it as a [i]paid[/i] job, I don't know about the wages, but I've heard they're not fantastic. However, you also get to meet the Bungie team (which should be cool) and get to play Halo 2 just about all day (which is even cooler). I would apply for the job but I'm underage, and I live in Canada so I'd have to go a looong way to get to Bungie Studios :)

  • I''ll let you have me as a tester if you'd like. I am the most intelligent, insightful, and humorous person ever born. I can scale large vertical rises with blistering speed. I'll post again when I want to start working and with my salary demands. If you are serious, I allow you to email me at indo44220@aol.com and offer me the job. Ian

  • Sadly at the moment no, currenttly I am working on my portfolio, which will consist of my art photographed with a 35mm camera put on slides and cd. Hopefully in a few weeks I will get some of those done and post them on my web site and add a link to either this forum, or the work for bungie in art forum frankie was said to add this week or both. I will have links to both hand drawn and computer art posted.. Thanks for your intrest though! Jon

  • All? I've been a hardcore Bungie fan since first playing Marathon 2 in 1997! Since then I've tried Pathways into Darkness (too tricky and old, but good!) and finished the Marathon trilogy and Oni and Halo. Now all I need to play is Myth! Working at Bungie would be a dream! They are one of only very few companies that don't make bad games! (Blizzard would be another...)

  • No... I played Myth and I kind of liked it. But when Halo came out, Everybody wanted a piece.

  • Thanks for your Reply to my question Mat, Yes I have access to 3D Studio Max as well as MAYA and many other programs including Photoshop which I use often! Photoshop being by far the easiest of the 3 you mentioned to learn. With Halo 2 still over two months away I will have time to read up on MAYA and Studio Max, before engulfing myself in the flood... Thanks Again! Jon
