Earn money, accessories, merchandise or gifts the choice is yours.
Does it sound to good to be true? in 2018 the gaming industry is over a $50 billion dollars business. Therefore video game testing has become one of the most vital parts of the game development process.
So how much can I get paid?
According to a 2008 Game Developer Magazine survey, game testers earn an average of $39,063 annually, so in 2018 we must expect the number to be higher. But the earnings, of course, comes down to the time used and efficiency. But there is much money to be made from game testing or reviews.
Why would a company pay me to play the games?
Well, it all comes down to providing flawless content to the consumers. The programmers are not always gamers, they won’t find all the bugs that a gamer most often will.
So paying you to test games and find glitches for them that would otherwise ruin the game experience for the user, and possibly hurt their sales, from their perspective it’s really a good deal.
What kind of games will I get to test?
Game testers test all games for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 (PS3), Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii & PC. Genres include sports titles, RTS, FPS, MMPORGS, action, adventure and more.
It`s not possible to tell what games you may test as a tester because most will be games that haven’t even been released to the public!
What companies will I test games for?
Well, that depends on the gaming job provider you find the best. But here on NicheFinder.blog, I had my eyes on Gamingjobsonline, and the companies they work with you can see below.
Is it free to become a game tester or reviewer on Gaming jobs online?
No. It will cost a small fee. But compared to other companies and agents that take 20-30% commission of your earnings, It`s a good deal in my opinion and also shows the tester to be is more serious about it. And they will never take any commission from the money you earn.
