Does anyone have any decent suggestions on how to get betatesters for an indie game that aren't necessarily developers?
Ie, at a stage that's too early to even put on steam greenlight.
Something like a "betatester community" would fit the bill, but surprisingly my searches show no results.
There are plenty of game and company-specific outlets, but no "general gamers betatester community".
Again - this seems surprising?
I guess the closest thing would to be a betatester of early access games on a platform like steam, but that doesn't completely cut it.
Wouldn't there be a lot of interest in having a group of folks who are willing to just test entirely unhread of startup game projects? For the sake of curiosity and potential?
If you happen to actually know of "the one rare" source which might be congruent with this, please do tell.
Open to all other ideas aswell.
