Besides TDL and TTCN-3 also Madis Taimre presentation – Model-based testing of 3D video games – was very much appreciated by the audience. The presentation summarized how MBT (Model based testing) and TTCN-3 can be effectively used in system testing of 3D games developed on Unity platform. Open source framework for applying TTCN-3 in Unity game test automation was developed; MBT was applied for generating TTCN-3 scripts and as a result better test coverage was received compare to the manual scripting.
