Playtest with Us
What is playtesting?
Playtesting is trying out a game that is in development, a prototype. You help make the game better by playing it in an unfinished state and sharing your feedback. Games go through many rounds of playtesting before they are ready for release.
Why should I sign up for a Ludoliminal playtest?
You will have the opportunity to try a new game before it is even released. You’ll also get a peek behind the scenes at how the game design process works!
How do I find out about a playtest?
We put out our playtest invitation a shortly before each playtest event through our mailing list. The invitation is open for several days or until the playtest is full. We typically accept 4-10 families per playtest. We playtest often with families local to us in Pittsburgh, PA, but we do also mail game prototypes to playtesters further away or run print & play or digital playtests.
