Overview: As games become more complex QA cost increases dramatically. To mitigate this, QA automation can be used, but most impressive systems still rely heavily on engine specific implementation. For FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE we have developed a new replay system which can reduce greatly the cost of supporting new project. Moreover this replay system is able to build its own map from player movement and also can explore a level on its own. Combining replay and exploration allows an increased range of tests while still allowing to play the game from start to end.
