Wait... what's playtesting?
During game development, we want to create the best experience for the community.
We invite volunteers to play our games and give feedback on gameplay, level design, user interfaces, and if they’re engaged and having fun!
When hosting from the WB Games Montréal studio, we have a unique take on how we treat playtesters. See below for some frequently asked questions, and feel free to reach out if you have any others.
The application process goes through the WB Games family at large and you’ll select Montréal to specify our studio.
When you sign up for playtesting, we enter your name into a database of potential players that we contact to participate in our research. We select players based on a wide variety of criteria and invite them to take part in different types of tests.
During a playtest, you will come to our studio to play new or unreleased games and give us your honest feedback on your experience. These tests typically last from a few hours up to a few days.
Playtesting is usually conducted on-site in Montréal. Participants must be able to reach our office at their own expense. We are not currently conducting virtual playtest sessions.
We may also occasionally email you with a link to a survey to fill out from your home to give us your opinion on a variety of possible gaming related topics.
No. All participants are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement which prohibits you from sharing your experience with anyone. WB Games takes confidentiality very seriously.
Players may receive a gift as compensation for their time. You will be notified of any potential gift when you are contacted to participate in a study.
No. This is user research. You will be playing a game and giving honest feedback to help improve our games as a player, not performing tests and logging bugs as an employee.
You may receive a gift as compensation for your time and can leave if you no longer want to play the game during the session.
If you are registering a child, you must first submit YOUR information on page 1 of the questionnaire, and then your child’s information on another page.
We will contact the adult when a playtesting session is available. The child will need to be accompanied by an adult, and both people will need to sign a confidentiality agreement. If you want to register as well as your child, you will need to register each person separately.
