What resource could I use to find testers to test out my game? Even though gamedev.net and the GMC are good places to find dev testers, I want to see if I can get some casual gamers since those are usually the best testers.

We're pretty casual around here.  :P  Just fellow game devs helping each other.  And your topic in Creations got some useful comments.

Meant non-devs, casual gamers. People who don't develop games all day. Also, it's a closed Beta, which is why I'm not posting it here. You guys provide great feedback but you're just not the demographic I'm looking to test for. 

 

The game I have been developing for 9 months has never been posted here. Chance, did you get access to google's servers? :P

Gamejolt has a good mix of devs and non-devs. Maybe you could post a WIP there and post it with info on how to participate in the Beta? Just my two cents

www.linustechtips.com

 

It's a hardware channel. From the responses so far, most of them are avid gamers, but I guess I can't be picky...

Yeah I guess. And they might find some pretty nasty bugs anyways.

I would be glad to test out your games, if you posted a topic in the job offers section of the forum. You could simply ask anyone whether they would like to test out your game for free and / or pay them (you don't have to pay them, just don't say that you will).

 

If you would like me to test out your game, private message me via the personal messenger on this forum.
