PlaytestCloud Subscriptions: The Starter Plan

Walt Disney once said "The only way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." and that's what our Starter Plan is all about. Our Starter Plan is a pay as you go model catered towards independent gaming studios who will be needing our service sparingly. It is somewhat of a lite version of the product with a few features unavailable. But don't fret, it still comes with the most important features that will be instrumental in obtaining valuable data to help refine your game before that big launch day. With the Starter Plan, you are still able to run playtests that are up to 30+ minutes long and choose standard targeting methods to pick playtesters based on demographics and their gaming experience - just to name a few features.

What can I get with the Starter Plan?

For this package, the pricing is quite unique as you pay for each video individually. Each video costs $120/video and will give you access to great features of PlaytestCloud, such as choosing from 50+ standard targeting options to define exactly who it is that should playtest your game. Also, not only can you run our standard tests you also have the option to run concept, multi-session, longitudinal, and survey tests. These are just a few of the many features that are available for our Starter Plan customers.

What am I missing out on with the Starter Plan?

But, it's not all hunky-dory on the Starter Plan. As we said in the beginning, this is a lite version of the full program that PlaytestCloud offers. If you are looking for some of the most sought-after features, you will find that they are only available for our Professional Plan customers. By moving to the Professional plan, you will gain access to features such as: choosing a specific player demographic, running playtests with children, target players who use specific devices, guiding your players through the test with in-game tasks, or even running A/B tests. These are just some of the many features that are unlocked when you choose to subscribe to our Professional Plan instead of the Starter Plan.
