- PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi
has revealed that today Episode 2 of The Tester, which features video game designer David Jaffe
, will be hitting PSN.
To quote: It's only been a week since the season premiere of The Tester
and I know many of you are already speculating about who will stay, who's going home AND what will the remaining competitors face next.
You don't have to wait any longer to find out - Episode 2 of 'The Tester' arrives later today. The battle heats up this week for the aspiring SCEA game testers
as the competition gets more physical and they face legendary game designer David Jaffe
As one of the most respected professionals in the industry, we're honored to have him join the panel and evaluate the candidates in action. You don't want to miss the insight and perspective he brings to the show. In the epic spirit of his most famous game, check out this week's Episode 2 preview:
While last week's premiere episode tested each individual's ability to discern visual differences as a key skill to become a game tester, in Episode 2, the cast takes on their first 'team' challenge. The test this week is all about communication skills.
The ability to communicate effectively is important in any job, but especially critical in game development. Who can follow directions? Who can give them? Who can do this effectively using human hamster balls, blindfolds, and a bullhorn?
If you haven't started watching The Tester, it is a great time to start. Can Fame Girl redeem herself? What's Doc planning? Who will come out on top?
The Tester will be available in both Standard and High Definition formats from PlayStation Store. And, remember it's also showing in the PlayStation Home Theater where you gotta get this week's new free T-shirt. There's also a commemorative 'goat chair' available for purchase for your personal space.
Thanks for downloading and watching, everyone. Enjoy the show.
