PLAYTESTERS WANTED JOIN THE PANEL
Glad you’re looking at this page. If you’re reading this, you might be interested in providing feedback for the game. That’s great! Let me tell you how this is supposed to work. Once or twice a month (shortly before and/or after the monthly update release), I’d like to play with two to four playtesters to gather some feedback. Each session will be roughly 30 minutes for playing and 15 minutes for discussion afterwards.
What kind of people AM I looking for?
Well, beggars can’t be choosers, right? So basically, if you enjoy retro PvP games, have a computer and a headset, you fit the profile. Oh, one more thing: I’d like to have a voice or video chat with all of you after each play session so I can collect your thoughts on the game. Therefore, you should be comfortable providing honest feedback and have no trouble talking with a group of strangers.
How does it work?
If you decide to join the playtester panel, you’ll receive an email approximately a week before the playtest sessions with the planned day and time. Spots will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. The first four players to agree to participate will play the game. It’s as simple as that.
What’s in it for YOU?
That’s a fair question. Since this isn’t a AAA production, there’s obviously no money involved. Bummer, right? But hear me out. There are still some benefits to participating. Firstly, you’ll get the game for free and gain insight into how it’s made. Additionally, you’ll receive credit as a playtester, using either your real name or a nickname as long as it’s free of profanity. Not too bad, is it?
But here’s the big one. Since you’re probably a no-budget indie gamedev as well, you’re likely also looking for playtesters. Therefore, I’ll honor your precious time with mine. For every minute you spend playing and discussing the game in the panel sessions, I’ll spend a minute playing your game and providing feedback too.
sounds good, how do i apply?
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that you’d like to participate. That’s it. You’re on the panel.
