So I’ve done a couple of the “analyze your game for $20″ deals I mentioned earlier, and they’re a lot of fun. And I think they’re pretty useful, too — not that I had any amazing insights, but a new pair of eyeballs is always handy.
I wish I could analyze my own game this way, but I can’t. I’m too close to it. I’ve also subjected friends to alpha testing, and I’ve even done a full beta-test with hundreds of people. But after the beta, I made lots of changes, and now I have nobody left to give me first impressions!
If you’ve got a bit of time to spare, and you’re a game developer (or are an experienced casual game beta-tester who can give lots of feedback), and want to earn $20, drop me a line!
