Production is final concept arts, modeling, animation and programming. Testing is a big task for game developers.

Typically there are separate teams for porting and testing; some companies prefer to outsource this activity to specialized units.<br />The Indian game developers take their games seriously and spare no cost or efforts to enhance the entertainment value that their games offer.
