At PlaytestCloud, we don’t just offer the best playtesting tools (and the best playtesters!) out there – we also make sure you get all the insights you need from them, with no work from your end. How? With our games user researchers!
At PlaytestCloud, our mission is simple: to help game studios everywhere make games that players love.
Which is why we’ve worked so hard on creating the very best playtesting tools out there, now used by 45 of the 100 top grossing games in the App Store, and delivering the best results to companies all around the world. From the biggest to the smallest teams, from big companies to small indie developers, we’ve worked hard on giving every single creator out there access to all the playtesting tools they need, at a price they can afford. Tie this to the fact that we can help you find playtesters tailored to any specific target audience or custom playtest you’re running, and all in all there’s not much more one could ask for.
Testing, however, means nothing without the right interpretation and the right insights. Mark Twain once said that “Supposing is good, but finding out is better” – and what’s playtesting, if not the process through which you stop supposing and start finding, by placing your games directly in the hands of players?
Finding what you need, however, means you need to both analyze and interpret the data from your playtest correctly, and that can mean a lot of data. With all the different playtesting options we offer, combing through each recording for the right insights can be a taxing (and slightly boring) task – which is why we have game user research experts ready to do it for you, from beginning to end.
Our User Research Team
We work with some of the world’s leading games user research experts, with years and thousands of hours of experience analyzing games, ready to help you find out how to make yours better. After all, some playtests can take up to 100 hours to analyze – why spend all that time doing it, when we have experts ready to do it for you?
We’ve written extensively about user research in the past, from how to build a good research plan to figuring out the ideal research methods for your goals. We even wrote a full book about it, The Mobile Playtesting Playbook, with all the insights you need on games user research, its importance and how to do it. This is all to say that our experts are at the top of their field, and they don’t just help clients: they mold what we do at PlaytestCloud every day, making sure we’re pushing both our product and the industry forward, for both gaming companies and players.
