How to... playtest!

The most important thing to remember when you test a game is to think out loud when you are playing. 

When talking in a playtest, try to think of it like a stream of consciousness - describe the many thoughts and feelings which pass through your mind when interacting with the game. However, it’s also important to remember to stay focused on the game! You might be interested in checking out our "What to talk about" explainer video!

When you're done, either manually end the recording (when using the PlaytestCloud: Be a Playtester app) or end it by closing the game app (when not using the PlaytestCloud app). The recording will upload to us as long as you're connected to strong wifi. 

You may like to check out our tester code of conduct, which will explain what is expected from our testers.
