The Usability Insider
Newsletter from Situated Research - May 2011

This month's focus is on video game usability and how to make your game user-friendly.  


The rate of success when developing video games is relatively low when compared to other industries. Designing a hit video game requires a brilliant concept, hard work, and a bit of luck.


What can game companies do to raise their success rate in building profitable, hit games? User experience research may be the key to raising the success rate, but misconceptions of what it entails and confusion with QA testing often leave it on the back burner.


If you want to make your video game better for your customers, start by attending one of our FREE webinars in May. Let us help you to take the first step!  

FREE Webinar:

We have had 3,500 people sign up for this webinar and many of them are your competition.
