Frequently Asked Questions:
What am I signing up for?
We recruit participants for paid user research studies and playtesting events. Depending on the study, you may be part of a group or work one on one with one of our user researchers. During the study, we will usually ask you to try out products, provide feedback, or provide input on new product ideas. Studies are usually one-off events that last from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
How much do you pay?
All study participants are compensated for their time. The amount of compensation we offer varies depending on the type and length of study we're recruiting for. Similarly, the type of compensation also depends on the specific study, but we usually offer a choice of cash/cash equivalents and gift cards. Specific compensation amounts vary, but payment tends to be betweeen $75 and $200 for studies that're 45 minutes to 2 hours long (with longer studies usually paying towards the higher end of the range).
Where are studies conducted?
The specific location depends on the type of study we conduct. Sometimes, we’re using a dedicated research facility, sometimes we use client offices. You can indicate a location preference for Portland or Vancouver in the signup questionnaire. We also regularly conduct studies remotely from your home or office using software such as Google Hangouts or Skype.
What type of gamers are you looking for?
This varies greatly depending on the study. Sometimes we look for casual players, other times we look for hardcore gamers, sometimes we recruit a mix. Depending on the study, we may look for specific platforms or genres, but are usually looking for a variety.
I'm not a gamer, can I still participate?
We sometimes conduct studies that involve non-gaming products and services. For current opportunities, please view our main site.
How soon will I hear back from you?
We will contact you via email or phone if you qualify for one of our studies. If you don't qualify for any current study, we will keep your information on file and may schedule you for future studies.
How do I make sure I don't miss your email?
You may want to add our email address email@example.com to your trusted email list.
Will you send me spam or sell my information to third parties?
We will never sell or otherwise disclose contact information to third parties. Your information is kept confidential and only used to help us find participants for our research studies. We hate spam as much as you do and work hard to safeguard your data. We will only contact you if we're considering inviting you to one of our studies or need further clarification on the information you've provided.
How old do I have to be to sign up?
You have to be 18 years or older to sign up. However, we do regularly conduct studies with gamers who're minors. For those studies, we ask that parents or legal guardians complete the parent signup questionnaire available here.
How are studies with minors conducted?
Prior to the study, the parent/guardian will be asked to provide written consent for their child to participate in the study. At the beginning of the study, the child will be asked for his or her consent as well. A parent or guardian will then have to be present for the entire study session their child has been scheduled for. There are absolutely no exceptions to this requirement.
