How long does a playthrough study take and how is it managed?

The duration of a study varies depending on your game’s length and complexity. We manage the process end-to-end, coordinating with players and dealing with all the logistical aspects of the project.

Your team members are also welcome to join this server to observe all player interactions directly. This setup provides you with real-time access to common player questions, concerns and valuable feedback, which can be instrumental in refining your game!
