Quick evaluation of design features
for a top 10 global sales game company
There were plans to release new games in Japan, China, Korea, USA, Italy and Saudi Arabia.
The client requested to have local male gamers to quickly evaluate the game’s design style
in the form of a questionnaire.
We proposed Survey Monkey as one of the programming tools which will be able to create a comprehensive questionnaire. The questionnaire was programmed into six languages and distributed to our own Asia Cloud Panel and panel partners. The data was collected from 1,800 samples of 300 people in six countries.
Online depth interviews
for a top 100 global sales game company
As new games are released one after another in Japan, the client desired to recruit smartphone gamers from the relevant categories as fast as we can and conduct online depth interviews.
We built a panel of 140,000 smartphone game players and directly targeted attributes such as game type/ level/ duration of play/ amount paid, and intention to participate in interviews. We were able to recruit directly from our own game panel in the form of questionnaires, and arranged the interviews with 20 gamer participants within five days.
Depth online interview
for a top 25 global sales game company
After successful track record internationally, an Online Game Companion Arrangement Service PC website was planned to be launched in Japan. The client requested to recruit potential users and conduct a single in-depth online interview to evaluate the following:
- 1) Website UX
- 2) Game companion service experience (having someone playing games together)
- 3) General evaluation
Website registration and gameplay experience on participant's PC, and a Zoom interview on the smartphone were set-up. We have recruited users from our own game panel who fit the requirements, and created an interview manual to facilitate their participation and shared it with all participants.
Closed Beta Test
for a top 30 global sales game company
The client was planning to release the world's top selling Simulation Game (SLG) game in Japan but
would like to have a Closed Beta Test (CBT) before the release. They also required support in
recruiting target players.
Recruited 500 respondents for Closed Beta Test (CBT) from a group of 3,000 respondents whom initially participated for a SLG (Simulated Life Game) user questionnaire 2 months ago. We also guided the respondents to Discord (video chat app) so that the client could interact directly with the participants. As a result, the client was able to holistically analyze not only the fact data from the CBT, but also the basic attributes and emotional data such as the play preference obtained in the pre-questionnaire.
Recruiting 500 average gamers, 30 questions asked (programming of survey, sample recruitment, raw data delivery all included)
Recruiting Online Respondents
Recruiting 3 average gamers and performing 1 hour of interview (recruiting fee, incentive, programming all included)
Online Depth Interview
