1）What is Game Taster?
Game Taster is a gamer focus community created by 9GAG. It's a platform where you can try out some of the latest games on the market and make money simply by playing them and providing feedback.
3）I want to test a game, what should I do?
It's simple, sign up for a GameTaster account here for free. Once you're logged in, browse around, find games that interest you, and start applying!
4）Are there any requirements to join?
Different games require different types of Game Tasters, and it's our job here to match each game with the right kind of tasters. You may notice different sets of preset requirements for each game.
5）What do I do after applying?
You can check your application status in your profile.
The whole process consists of four stages:
(1) The first green checkmark means you have successfully applied.
(2) A second green checkmark (assigned) means you have been successfully chosen as an official game taster.
(3) The third one will appear once you've finished playing the game and submitted the results.
(4) And a final checkmark will only appear once we've approved the submission.
6）What do I need to submit after testing?
Different games will have various tasks, but in general, GameTasters will have to submit an in-game screenshot that includes your in-game ID and a written review.
7）How much can I earn?
It depends on the game, but a general rule of thumb is that the more challenging the task is, the higher the pay. Triple-A games also tend to pay more than indie games.
8）When will I get paid?
We will send out the payment once you've accumulated $10 or more GameTaster rewards. You will receive the payout within 4 - 6 weeks after we've confirmed your account balance.
9）How are game tasters chosen??
Our staff will review each of the Game Taste applications and handpick the ones that fit most.
10）Is there a limit to how many game tests I can apply?
There isn't a limit, so feel free to apply away!
11）How will I be paid?
We only accept PayPal for now, so make sure to include your PayPal address in your profile. More options will be added in the near future.
12）How does GameTaster make a profit?
We make a living by playing the crucial role of lining up game developers and publishers with our community. You get paid by trying out games, and in return, game developers will gain valuable insights from your in-game activity and reviews.
13）How do I get the testing game?
Depends on the platform, early access on Steam will only take you a few clicks, while beta testing a game pm App store will be a whole different story. Nonetheless, all approved Game Tasters will receive an email from us with detailed instructions.
14）Will in-game purchases be reimbursed?
Yes, if in-game purchases are necessary for testing, we will fully reimburse the amount you spent in-game.
