Game Testers and Confidentiality

If you’re going to get into this field, then you had better know all the legalities surrounding it.

Let’s face it, you are dealing with unreleased games.  Do you think these companies are not going to protect themselves?

I read about people getting fired all the time for releasing information that they should not have.  Or for just speaking on a subject that is prohibted by confidentiality agreements.  Check out this article HERE where Microsoft fired a guy because he spoke with a magazine about the XBox 360 issues.  They were even filing civil charges against him which could cost him thousands of dollars just to defend.

Bottom line is, if you are hired as a tester or any other position in a gaming company take the confidentiality seriously.  You will sign legal documents that prohibit you from doing a multitude of things including speaking with the press, attempting to promote an unreleased game, discussing the games with people outside of the office.  The list goes on.

When you get hired, read your agreement.  Even ask for a copy if they permit that so that you know exactly what is required of you and you don’t go and violate it.

Just like with any job, take this one seriously but also know that when a large gaming company finds out an employee violates their agreements, they’ve got a huge legal department who can go after you.

You must sign up on today.  I will share all the inside secrets with you about game testing and so much more!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    Buut maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people culd connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
