PlaytestCloud offers you the ability to test your game in the prototype phase.
Marvel is a prototyping tool that allows you to build interactive prototypes for iOS, Android, and desktops. With PlaytestCloud you can get feedback on your prototypes in the same way you would when playtesting games with us.
Once you've got your prototype ready to go, copy the URL from within Marvel:
Next, head to PlaytestCloud to begin the playtest setup.
Setting up the prototype playtest
- Setup your playtest to the parameters that you'd like.
- Once you're happy with how the playtest has been setup, insert the link you copied from Marvel.
Insert your Marvel prototype link here:
The rest of the setup, including payment, is the same as for any of the other playtests.
You're able to select the demographics of the people who will test your prototype; add survey questions; create step-by-step instructions for testers to answer when they're testing your prototype – all of the functionality you've come to expect from playtesting through PlaytestCloud.
Players will be asked if they want to install the Marvel app on their home screen, which is the default behavior for Marvel prototypes. They can click the "x" in the top right corner of their screen to minimize this message.
It's a good idea to prompt players to do so with step-by-step instructions.
Feel free to simply copy & paste the following to use as your first task in the step-by-step instructions:
Please tap the "x" in the top-right corner to close the prompt from Marvel. You don't need to download the Marvel app to complete this playtest.
Note: If your prototype test takes less than 15 minutes, please put
a special request so that we can adjust the amount of time players
need to spend in the test.
Receiving videos is also the same process as any other playtest. Once the videos are ready, you'll be notified via email and will be able to view them on PlaytestCloud's website. Check out our Help Center article on how to analyze your first playtest for more detailed information.
What you do next is up to you! Of course, we hope that you learn a lot about your prototype from the videos and that uncover what you need to build what you envisioned.
Whatever you decide to do next, please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any more questions about your playtest or anything else.
