Players in the "Game Testing" market

The Game Testing market is an incipient market, in which there are still few players. Most of them are large technology companies such as Cognizant and Capgemini. It is true, however, that in recent years more companies have emerged that focus on this niche, such as the Spanish company Sekg. This company analyses the response that gamers have to video games using the technique of biofeedback - which consists of monitoring in real time the physiological functions of the body related to the nervous system. Sekg, founded in 2015, received its first seed round in 2016.

In terms of acquisitions in the sector, last year Keywords Studios, which provides services to the video game industry, bought the testing company Enzyme for €3.6m. Keywords Studios is a global company with offices in Dublin, London, Barcelona, Milan, Rome, Tokyo, Singapore, Shanghai, New Delhi, Pune, Montreal, Seattle, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro and has made a total of 11 acquisitions.
