Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, recently had the opportunity to work closely with leading game development organizations. We learned how game development differs from "standard" development, and worked with the game development organizations to develop technical and process improvement strategies to suit the industry's unique development needs. This presentation describes what we learned. It explores challenges and solutions that apply not only to game development, but also to most high-resolution graphic development, which is increasingly being performed on Linux.
