SIGN UP STILL OPEN FOR TEEPEE GAMES' NEW BETA TESTING SCHEME

London, UK – 21 st October 2011TeePee Games, the innovative discovery platform pioneer for social, smartphone and online Flash games, is inviting applications from individuals to become paid beta testers. The deadline for sign up is at midnight on Friday 28 th October, and after this time all new applicants will be put into a waiting list for any future opportunities.

Beta testers will help TeePee Games test out games from some of the largest social and online game developers. Successful candidates will get to play games before they’re released and will be able to tell developers what they think of their games. Testers will also be able to earn money for each title they test and get closer to some of the key development industry figures. Some of the activities beta testers will be asked to undertake include: reporting on bugs and glitches, giving feedback about possible improvements, identifying parts of a game that may cause frustration, providing their thoughts about certain features and helping developers to gauge the general level of interest in a title.

No qualifications or previous experience are needed for the role as all shortlisted candidates will receive some initial training from TeePee Games and will be thoroughly briefed on what is expected from them prior to each beta test. The only requirements are that individuals must be fluent in English, be able to work independently and have an active interest in the games development industry.

Tony Pearce, CEO at TeePee Games, comments, “At a time when unemployment is at the highest level it’s been for 17 years, I’m glad that we have the resources to offer individuals these great opportunities.” He adds, “Successful candidates will have the chance to gain a foot in the door of the games industry and develop valuable skills that I’ve no doubt will help them find full time employment, possibly with one of the developers that we’re currently working with, further down the line.”

Individuals interested in becoming beta testers should register for a TeePee Games account at www.teepeegames.com and sign up at the “test games” section before midnight on Friday 28 th October.
