Once we have enough applicants, we will select playtesters based on the specific game’s requirements, invite them in (our studio or one of the Uni labs), and let them playtest one of our early builds.
Don’t worry if you don’t get selected to playtest straight away; there will be plenty of opportunities with different titles.
Where do we playtest?
Playtesting is carried out either in our Middlesbrough Office or a University computer lab. The venue will be confirmed when invitations are sent.
Are there any restrictions on who can apply?
You must be over the age of 18 and live in Middlesbrough or the surrounding region (so you can get to us!).
What if I’m not a gamer?
Whether you play 60 hours a week or have never held a controller, we still want to hear from you. We’re interested in all skill and experience levels, so if you’re not a confident gamer please still get in touch.
What’s in it for you?
It depends on the project, but rewards can range from in-game credits, to free copies of games, to promotional swag. You’ll also be fed and watered during the playtest, so you don’t need to worry about packing a lunch.
