Default Michael Russell\'s Guide to Passing Development Milestones

A few months, the man in charge of Ritual's QA department, Michael Russell, wrote an article on development milestones and the testing criteria they must pass in order for the milestone not to be failed. Now, Seapine Interactive, makers of bug-tracking software TestTrack Pro, published Michael's article in the Expert Advice section of their latest newsletter. Enjoy this clip:
Bugs are always rated by the test team on their severity. Severity levels are fairly well defined, and severity 1 is the worst. For a bug to be severity 1, it must be either a crash bug, cause data loss, cause the title to fail certification on a console platform, or be a bug that would definitely cause the product not to ship.

Every product has these sev 1 bugs. The more you have active, the less stable your product really is. The goal is to keep no more than ten of them on our plate from milestone to milestone.
While not revealing new information about Ritual's current projects, this article is nevertheless an interesting read for those looking to find out more about the inner workings of a development studio like Ritual. Check it out!
