Making & Breaking Stampede: Racing Royale

12th Mar 2024 Working in Games

The role of a QA team is so much more than just playing games. Working in QA requires innovative, outside-of-the-box thinking to find new catch pesky bugs, locate glitches, and find new ways to break a game. For Sumo Leamington, the QA team have been hard at work ensuring players of its debut title, Stampede: Racing Royale, won’t find themselves with mismatched customisation or flying off into space anytime soon.

This insider knowledge and in-depth approach to playing the game means that you don’t ever want to find yourself racing against the Sumo Leamington QA team. Here, Lead QA Susie Tsang and QA Tester Jordan Wharton share their favourite ways to break games, why it’s so important to have QA embedded in your development team, and some of the best bugs they found during development.

Stampede: Racing Royale pits 60 players against one another across three-round eliminator events, culminating in a high-stakes finale to crown the winner. Rounds include Stampede Races, which offer classic karting action on outrageously inventive circuits against up to 59 other opponents, and Stampede Battles, where competitors are locked in power-up-laden arenas to fight their way to victory. Stampede: Racing Royale is available to Wishlist on Steam now.
