Get help squashing bugs with the Beta Testers Collective


Play testing and the process of gathering actionable feedback on game levels can be a tricky thing. Everyone plays games differently, and I’m sure we all know that guy / girl who gets stuck on the most basic puzzle sequence in a level.

Together it is a very potent mix.

Half-Life: Minecraft – Amazing Minecraft Project
