G.Round, a new online platform giving gamers around the world a chance to playtest unreleased games and shape their development via feedback, has launched in pre-alpha and invites players to register and gain access to a curated and exclusive selection for forthcoming titles. G.Round will expand its activities rapidly as it marches toward full launch in 2021.
Playtesters have access to a wide variety of unreleased games from developers all over the world, with new titles going up weekly. Each title stays available for four weeks, during which players can choose what they would like to play for themselves or watch on content creators’ broadcasts. After playing games, they can write reviews and fill out surveys to ensure their feedback is taken into account by the studios and publishers.
G.Round lets players impact all stages of game development via their opinions. By providing feedback directly through the G.Round platform and Discord server, playtesters will help development teams and publishers understand what they’re doing right and how they can improve their games.
“This is an opportunity for players to check out awesome games and take action to help them see the light of day,” said Rick Nahm, Co-founder and COO at G.Round. “We hope G.Round will be a place for gamers to enjoy curated fantastic games, provide productive feedback and be part of a journey in helping more talented teams and games succeed.”
A strategic partnership with Global Top Round (GTR) enables the G.Round platform to recruit games globally. Global game startup accelerator GTR supports small studios from all over the world with development, publishing and fundraising. Since 2015, GTR has supported more than 50 game studios worldwide via its GTR Accelerator Program, which adds 10 new games every year.
