PLAY/TEST is a monthly series that offers the opportunity to play works-in-progress, debug recent builds, experiment with new ideas, and connect with community. From retro-inspired platformers and action-packed shooters to tricky puzzles and narrative adventures, you’ll find an intriguing mix of locally-made games to jump in and PLAY/TEST.

Creators, players, and game enthusiasts of any level of expertise are welcome. The best playtests include players and makers from all kinds of backgrounds, interests, and knowledge of games.

How to Participate

Game Players:
Show up at GlitchHQ anytime between 6-9PM on on the first Friday of the month. RSVP on the Eventbrite to stay up to date on event details and let game makers know you’re coming!

Game Makers:
Sign up on the Eventbrite to participate with a free “I’ll Bring a Game” ticket. Your ticket guarantees a space to demo and includes social media promotion as part of the event. Space is limited and sign ups close two weeks before the event, so be sure to sign up early. All game makers must provide all of their own equipment for playtesting and game details for promotion.

Sign up, but can’t make it? That’s okay, we know life comes up. Feel free to release your ticket so another game maker can participate. This helps everyone involved by keeping players informed and ensuring opportunities for game makers.

Want to test your game, but all of the tickets are claimed? Bring it along! A limited amount of additional demo spaces will be available during PLAY/TEST on a first-come, first served basis as space allows.
