Old school Sega documentary explores life as a video game tester in 1996

May 16, 2016 | By Chris Kerr

What was life like for video game testers working at Sega in 1996; a year when the Sega Saturn was in its prime, and, bewilderingly, the Macarena soared to the top of the charts?

Thanks to the unearthing of a new documentary, filmed at Sega of America's Redwood office in California, you can see for yourself. 

Originally devised to be a “trainumenatry" used to sharpen up new recruits, the 28 minute doc now offers a behind-the-scenes look at Sega of America's test department in what eventually turned out to be one of the company's final years as a console manufacturer.
