*Note:

The “Confidence Pack” is a packaged service that cannot be customized. We have a fixed approach under this ‘packaged’ offering. It is about playing the game from end-user perspective in attempt to complete the gameplay objectives(start to finish) in a single exploratory round. Here we report every issue that occurred while reaching the final gameplay objectives.

The “Confidence Pack” does not involve QA iterations, regressions or multiple rounds with multiple test builds. But, our single single sweep from end-user perspective and our report of all the revealed issues and overall feedback points(which are collected through our journey towards reaching the end-game objectives, right from the beginning) are enough to give you confidence about release of your game. Of course, we expect you to fix the issues we have reported, in order to make the game better. In short, this pack will produce an end-user feedback as well as expert opinion(along with all technical issues, if revealed) for your game based on a single exploratory run.

Core Pass – It represents a list of quick-checks designed by GameCloud, specific to your gameplay objectives.
