Third Annual DDF Game Jam!

It's springtime in Phoenix, which means it's time for a DDF Game Jam! This marks our third Game Jam at DDF. This time, we had over 30 participants - the most ever!   The theme for this game jam was "Space Opera", which resonated nicely with the nerdy gamer mythos of our office. As usual, [...]

Our newest game tester — Bristol!

Darrin Schafer has been testing software for DDF for several years.  Last summer, he began fostering service dogs at his home. Part of the training involves exposing the dogs to different environments, like a bustling work place.  So Darrin asked if he could bring his service-dog-in-training Bristol into the office once a week.  And of course, we said yes.

Digital Dream Forge’s new office, part four

After many months of searching, we found DDF’s new home. It’s a great building and a much safer neighborhood than the last place, but having been through several office spaces, we knew we needed some tenant improvements. We like open space.  We are constantly shifting to accommodate our clients' testing needs, and walls just get in [...]

Digital Dream Forge’s new office, part three

(the third installment in our “how we got here” series) After about a year in our cozy two room suite, we kept acquiring new clients as word about our testing services spread.  We outgrew that first space and rented a very Grown Up and Professional office suite, with restrooms down the hall and a cleaning [...]

Digital Dream Forge’s new office, part two

(the continuation of the saga of finding our new office) Shortly after we opened for business, we learned that we needed to rent an actual office for some hardware licensing issues (and for home sanity preservation issues), so we found a cozy little office to move into.  It was owned by a friend and pretty close to [...]

Digital Dream Forge’s new office, the saga begins…

It’s been a little over five years since Digital Dream Forge launched as a Quality Assurance group. And we’re still going strong! We are the little QA studio that could! Now, we have some news about our fancy new office. But first, a little back story on how we got here: Way back in 2010 when we started [...]
