I'm currently an independent game developer. I'm open to the idea of working on a team in the game industry. I'm under the impression that being a "game tester" is a relatively easy way to get a job... however that job may be somewhat undesirable. So how was your experience working as a tester in the game industry?

Some interesting experiences could include:

  • Did the game tester position lead to other more desirable positions?
  • How were the relationships between testers and developers?
  • Did you write any code? (test "frameworks", unit tests etc)
  • If bugs made it into production was any (potentially unfair) blame put on the testers?
