Game Development Reference
The following is a test suite written to test all the building functionality for one faction
of a 3D real-time strategy game. It attempts to isolate each graphic and audio asset
associated with each building, as well as the individual functions of each. Note that
each question is written such that a “yes�? answer means a pass condition and a “no�?
answer means a fail—and a possible defect.
