Live Playtests (Interview with gameplay): What do I need to do?

So, you’ve been selected for an interview with gameplay - that’s great!

This interview includes a Live Playtest element, which means that you'll be playing a game while a game developer or games-user researcher watches. They'll then be able to ask you about your gameplay!

You don't need the game just yet: On joining the app before the session, you will be prompted to install the game on your device. Only begin to play when the interviewer asks you to. You'll need to share your screen before you play.

As you will need to have the PlaytestCloud app downloaded and ready on your device before you join, it’s best to ensure that you have that now. Please join the interview 10 minutes ahead of time so that you’re good to go when the time comes! You can join using the link in your invitation email. Make sure you have plenty of space available on your device for the download.

If you at any point realize that you're not able to attend the interview, please let us know as soon as possible using the "Can't make it?" link in the invite email.
