Mason, Ohio–March 13, 2007–Seapine Software, Inc., a global
provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM)
solutions, had a supporting role helping Epic Games and Microsoft
Game Studios(MSFT) win the video game industry’s equivalent of an
Oscar in San Francisco last week. Gears of War won the award for best
game, as well as awards for technology and visual arts, at the 2007
Game Developers Choice Awards. Epic Games uses Seapine’s TestTrack
Pro to manage the bug fixing process for its games.

TestTrack Pro helped make Epic’s iterative development process more
efficient by enabling the game’s designers and developers to
concentrate on the content and quality of the game, while our tool
took care of tracking issues and defects,” said Richard Riccetti,
president and CEO, Seapine Software. “In a game as complex as Gears
of War, there can be thousands of issues that need to be logged,
assigned, resolved, and verified before the game can ship. It must
also be ready on time to synchronize with console releases and
holiday demand,” Riccetti went on to say. “TestTrack Pro is used by
many leading game studios to ensure their titles work as intended and
customers have a great gaming experience.” TestTrack Pro is one of
Seapine Software’s suite of software application lifecycle management
(ALM) tools. Other tools in the suite include Surround SCM for
software configuration management and version control, QA Wizard
Professional for automated functional testing, and TestTrack TCM for
test case management.

Seapine’s tools enable a variety of popular software development
methodologies and help managers implement and enforce
industry-recognized software engineering best practices.
