Renegade needs your help to playtest our games!
Playtesting is an important part of designing incredible games, and playtesters are vital members of the game development process. You're not just playing a game, but working with the development team to make the game better. Joining our group offers the opportunity to be a part of the story at an early stage, to play games months before they are released, to have your name in the credits, and to know you played a valued role in shaping the final product.
WHAT EXACTLY DOES A PLAYTESTER DO?
In a nutshell, a playtester’s role is to play unpublished games to offer feedback that enables the developer to test concepts and mechanics, make improvements, identify potential problems, and ultimately determine if a game is fun. These games can fall into different stages of completion, from early prototypes that are still heavily under development, to nearly-finished games that just need a bit of fine-tuning before heading off to the printer. Your goal for each playtest will vary based on the developer’s needs for that session, and may not even involve playing a full game. In return for your participation, you will have your name printed in the rule book.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE?
We need your dedication and a willingness to set aside some of your valuable time each week to play games and offer feedback. In addition, you will need a computer with audio and internet access. Renegade testing is mostly online. We use Discord to communicate with our playtesting community, and Screentop (a free, browser-based app) to play most of our games.
