Top 7 Ways to Improve Your Playtest Feedback Quality

Here are our top 7 ways to improve your playtest feedback quality. If you want a spoiler, here’s the list!

  1. Ask negative leading questions. Trash/talk down your own game.
  2. Stay focused and interested in every word play testers say. Don’t defend anything. Don’t break their flow.
  3. Focus on problems and steer away from solutions.
  4. Ask about feelings.
  5. Explain what type of feedback you’re looking to get.
  6. Record audio.
  7. Get anonymous feedback at least once and late in the process.
